Fill-er up, please. . .

Not only do we buy our produce and meats locally but also our vino! 
The quality is so much better than store bought wine and you can't beat the price either. 

Here is a local cantina in town where we buy our wine. 

I took a few photos to share with you. 

Why America doesn't have something like this is beyond me! 

If you would like to taste some of the wines before you purchase it feel free and have some fresh baked "pane" while you are at it :) 

Salami, Sopressa or Cotechino anyone?
Let the fun begin! How cool is this???! 

Choose which type of vino you would like and she will filler up! 
Pretty wine barrels with art designs on them ~ 

Just how much does wine cost in a local cantina? Glera which is a Prosecco is 1.10 euro per liter. So lets do the math. 3 L = a gallon right? 3.30 for a gallon of Prosecco! Did I mention its home made?!

If you are in a hurry or if you are buying some wine for a friend you can also buy it bottled and ready to go. 
Italian vineyards in April ~ 
Spring is just around the corner. . . Hopefully, it is Spring already but here in the North of Italy its more like a repeat of Winter. But seeing these flowers give me hope :) 
A retired bicycle put to good use ~
