“Wine and culture” or either “wine is culture”: no limits for us (LOL). But, now, the combination is made by Nittardi, a winery in Chianti Classico (and not only there), owned by Stefania Canali (history expert from Venice) and her husband Peter Femfert (German editor and art connoisseur). They bought the winery in 1981, but the estate and the amazing small village with the tower in Castellina in Chianti is dated back earlier in the history and art (that is culture, of course).
The last month in Sicily there was a female press tour, to promote the local wines and lands. It was organized by Doc Sicilia Consortium: five american journalists of specialized press and overseas lifestyle have visited eleven sicilian wine cellars and the beautiful places of the Oriental Sicily as Caltagirone downtown, Ragusa Ibla, Noto, Modica and Taormina. A tour was based on the stimulation of sensation through the wine, the winery and the story of the fascinating Sicily.
