The Italians call it “The Law of the Terrazza,” which goes something like this: No matter what “they” do to you, no matter how bad the day, if, at the end of the day, you can sit on your terrace with good company and good wine, then life is good.
We received an email from friends who own a home in Italy, in Tuscany. This note told of the troubles and successes they have had growing their own wine. Right now they are in the process of bottling which is a whole new situation. Their home, Le Miccine, near Gaiole, has produced some award winning wines. The quote above, came with the email and it is so fitting of Italians. But, I think they have the right idea. This is an attitude everyone should have.
