I really will try and get up to date this week which may mean posting every day, as I still have lots to tell you.
Sorry to overload you but there are a few things I have in mind to write about, from when my nephew was here, the cherry harvest and The Montefiascone Hill Climb Race this weekend just gone.
1. It has a pleasant ambience in which to meet friends for a relaxing glass of wine, they have an excellent selection, some of them local.
2. The location in Montefiascone is convenient and an extra bonus for me is the amazing sunsets to be seen from there.
3. They run special events such as Cheese and Wine Tastings, Murder Mystery Evenings, art and photography exhibitions.
4. It is possible to buy besides wine, gastronomic products, ceramics, books, and sometimes jewellery or various pieces of art that are being exhibited.
5. It is also referred to as an Enoteca which in Italy also tends to mean that they will serve small snacks to go with the wines and also serve light suppers. I am not sure if this is every night, but certainly at the weekends, what ever they have decided to cook, so no choice but always delicious.
6. They have a bookshelf where you can leave and exchange books, where sometimes I have been lucky enough to find an English book or two. I leave books there myself sometimes. In fact when we were there last week there was a lady reading one of them, sitting outside enjoying a glass of wine. This gave me reason enough to be bold and talk to her, a very pleasant English woman who has lived in Montefiascone for a number of years. I am sure we will see each other around again now we have made initial contact.
We took my nephew and his girlfriend up to Volo di Vino one evening to meet up with some other friends, chill out enjoy some wine, a light supper and hopefully to enjoy the sunset.
As you can see it was another beautiful one, although I maybe left it a little late in the evening to photograph.
I am including a video of Volo di Vino that I found on YouTube that will give you a good idea of the setting.
Please take a minute or two to visit their website Volo di Vino. They also have a Blog which has occasional updates to advertise exhibitions and events. Blog Volo di Vino and for those of you that might be interested a Facebook page.
I look forward to enjoying a glass of wine with any of you that might visit Montefiascone in the future.
