Livernano… (www.livernano.it) a place in the heart of Chianti and Tuscany…no one does it better than Gudrun and Bob Cuillo at their 300+ acre farm /hamlet/resort/winery that produces award winning wines organic fruits , vegetables,marmalades and honey…ohh and I can’t forget a mention of their restaurant that prepares farm to table meals using the olive oil and fresh produce you can see from your table. Did I mention that you can almost walk among the grape vines and olive trees on your stay there and the serene view of the rolling hills of Chianti? This is truly a haven for a wellness vacation for mind, body and soul (and palate)! This was our best Chianti experience ever..the Chianti Classico, the white and rose were by far the best we have ever tasted, not to mention that rich tasting olive oil… the true Tuscan olive oil that is a rare find today!
Alfonso and I spent our Labor Day weekend there researching some ideas for an upcoming segment of my PBS TV series with Gudrun and along the way had an impromptu home style lunch we all made and ate together using the produce fresh from the garden and the olive oil produced there and (of course) served with the award winning wines…..
more to come on this marvelous Labor Day experience..but here are some photos to enjoy while sipping one of their award winning wines, more recipes and photos to come this week….
