  1. The life of a winemaker - there we go again!


    A triple grape, quite rare but a sign of abundance at harvest

    It's been six months since my last post on this series, but that's quite normal when it comes to wine-making, since things usually take months to develop.

  2. The Dude's Kitchen - A nightmare made of Pizza!

  5. The Dude goes into politics! - Many defeats, and many fruitless victories...


    The "Molino S. Susanna", which makes part of the Park, it still works with water to grind wheat
