Enotecas

This is our second jug

Wine shops with tastings available abound in this part of the world. Brunello di’ Montalcino is one of the most famous wines in the world and costs like it, too! But you can’t drink the libation of the gods every night or else you’d go broke.

THE answer to this is to buy the local table wine. You bring in your own jug and they fill it from a barrel in the back of the store. It is my unassuming beverage of choice, diluted with a diet sprite and maybe a slice of citrus. A little pecorino or parmesan cheese dipped in local honey, homemade bruschette and thou! It doesn’t get any better than this!
