POGGIO AL CASONE --- TOSCANA

***Pierregiorgio and his wife Ciara invited a bunch of friends to their vinayard to celebrate a fine Saturday, and I was lucky enough to get a golden ticket... Luca Forte and Kimberly picked me up with their twins Fabiana and Nico and we set off to this Touscan villa dream scene...

***Lolo killed a wild boar that he had stalked for 4 months and the crew gae their thanks before they ate it. Refreshing to see meat eaters so closely connected to their kill. For the lone Vego, the table was rip with incredible plates of amazing food...
***The family has a history of artist and the walls were littered with amazing works spanning the last several hundred years...
***Marco is one of Italy's top shapers and one hell of a funny human. He two has twins and here he is giing Jacamo one of his tee's...
***These lands are fertile...


***Lila is the family dog and weights a wopping 90 plus kgs... Resembles a small horse, and is a huge lover. Gave her some doggy massage and she melted... What a rad creature.
***Luca, Pierregiorgio and I, feeling an all day wine tasting extravaganza.
***This place is straight out of a movie, what a great family and such gracious hosts. Thanks so much for having us all and hope to see you again soon... Ciao, 111
