I love wine, in each and every colour. It has been mentioned I always reach for the fullest glass, regardless if it’s mine or not, but I’m just a ‘the glass is always half full’ sort of person!
In our local bars and restaurants, we have an abundance of sommeliers. Each one advising and encouraging us to try a new wine, theatrically arriving at the table, twirling and swirling, sniffing and snorting. I love the extra drama this adds to an evening out.
We are blessed to live in a region of Le Marche surrounded by rolling hills dotted with vineyards, family owned for generations. Their love and dedication to the art of winemaking is inspiring.
This is a wine region to be taken seriously and really does produce some stellar wines.
Thanks to the mild climate throughout the year and the constant exposure to the south, this land has been used for viticulture since the Middle Ages.
With around 24,000 hectares of vines, the cultivation of the grapes is now one of the most important agricultural activities in the Le Marche region. Thankfully most of the region’s best wines never leave and are enjoyed by local Italians and tourists……. and me!
Let me introduce you to one of our favourite local wine producers, Terra Fageto in Pedaso. Their hard work and passion is refreshing, creating a range of prestigious, genuine wines, each with its own personality.
This small winery is owned by the di Ruscio family and has been for four generations. I will leave Dante to tell you their story.
“This fragrant land, where ladybugs still settle.
This land guarded with love, by the hard work of four generations.
This land whose grapes look towards the shores of the Adriatic and are the result of careful organic farming.
This land gives a harmonious and genuine wine. “
