    The family that lived there were extremely heart warming and welcoming when we got there. We were greeted with coffee as soon as we arrived. The tour guide was so friendly and his English was fantastic. We were taught about the local area and how they grow and produce their different wines. After, we were served local cheese, meats and bread which were probably the best we’ve had since our arrival in Italy. We had three glasses of wine each and they were fantastic! Paired with a beautiful biscuit/dessert. They were in no hurry to get rid of us and took so much time and patience with everyone’s queries and comments.
