Behind the mountains lays a landscape that is rugged, and forgotten. Rural agriculture and dramatic landscapes roll forth and yet the people here continue to thrive. Olive trees, animals, chestnuts, and vines it's remote out here, but there is gold in them thar hills. Old vine vineyards with plots from a hundred or more years ago still produce grapes for a new generation of winemakers embracing the past with tools from today. We love this area for its purity and resilience; if you need a break from the everyday struggle, this is where you want to visit.
