The summer solstice has passed and around Petraia that’s when things really start to grow. We’re busier than ever keeping up with the weeds, the vegetable garden, the vineyards and the many wonderful guests who have come for a wine tasting or to take a class. There hasn’t been a whole lot of time to kick back…

I like to add crunch to creamy dishes with these delicious polenta crackers.

What an amazing spring we’ve had. Two successful wine fairs (Raw in London and Radda nel Bicchiere) and lots of special visits from our family, good friends and guests.

  Dear Friends, Spring has sprung at Petraia and we’ve got wine on the brain. FOR ONTARIO RESIDENTS: A pre-summer shipment of a few hundred bottles of our 2014 red, “ETERE” (Italian for “ether”), is on its way. It’s a fresh, reasonably priced red without sulphites added, that is ready to drink now. See the tasting…

Spring. Its late and a little cool this year in Chianti but it has arrived.  And like every year it is a little overwhelming! We’re busy getting things ship shape, inside and out, after a long winter. Yesterday we welcomed the firsts guests of the season, for a farm tour and lunch. I’m sorry I…
