Welcome to my blog

I love wine, and I love to travel. I want to live a healthy life, and I enjoy a good laugh. I love to read and to write…and I love my job.

I am fortunate enough to have a job that lets me look at pretty pictures all day while researching my passions. You see, I make beautiful wall calendars for a living for COMDA.COM

Each week I hope to add new posts, with beautiful images and tips on World Travel and Living Healthy. As well as my personal favourite, Vintages! I will teach you about wine, by sharing tips on pairings, varieties, tasting techniques and more.

Cheers and Enjoy!

Buttafuoco – The Anti-Ageing Secret
It is not a place, or a grape, but a style of wine. It is made from four grape varieties; Barbera, Croatina, Uva Rara and Ughetta di Canneto which are harvested and then fermented together in the same barrel. These grapes are grown on the steep sloping hills of Lombardy. The excellent sun exposure and very particular subsoil with limestones and Alpine deposits creates a unique environment which brands the grapes grown there. The robust structure of this wine is formed by long aging in oak barrels and ends with the wine being laid down in dark cellars at a constant temperature. Tasted “young” or “mature” this tangy, classic Italian red wine has a very high alcoholic content, generous tannins and a remarkable amount of natural antioxidants, which has led to its reputation of having anti-ageing powers and being an elixir of long life.
