About Us

Based out of Florence, we are constantly visiting Tuscan vineyards and searching for new, undiscovered wine producers and products around Italy. Through this, we have discovered that expensive and popular does not necessarily mean quality. Our goal is to shine light onto products, places, art and recipes that deserve attention!

We only write about things that we love.


Christina, I’m from Canada, but I have always been fascinated by Italian art and culture. My favourite wines: A good Chianti from Castellina, or Champagne!

Francesco, was born and raised in Florence. Growing up in one of the best red wine regions in the world, he has always had a curiosity for Italian agriculture and traditional products. His favourites: “Bordeaux and red wines from the hills around Siena and Piedmont”.

Ferdinando Marinelli, in the photo below, is the exhausted knight, aka (in Italian), il cavaliere stremato.
