Wine-Making, Ambassadors, and the Tuscan Sea

By Rachel Farrington

In our first week at Le Spinose we finished the grape harvest and started making the wine which is loads of fun.

The harvest is a family affair and the kids enjoyed it as much as the adults. The property has several amazing caves including two which have been converted to wine caves and one that the main house is built around (just off the kitchen and it houses the fresh veggies)

We worked late into the evening pressing grapes with a process that has changed very little over the centuries.

As a break from the longish hours our wonderful hostess invited us on a holiday to the sea with some of her friends, a former Italian Ambassador and a Consulate. It was pretty surreal to hang out on the beach with such company while our son swam in the Mediterranean with four Sherpa kids. There are so many interesting people to meet in the world!
