Style. Even Italian beehives have it.

IMG_1650 I spied these stylish Italian beehives during a splendid afternoon and evening at Agriturismo Il Greppo,  a lovely winery and bed/breakfast located somewhere between Siena and Montepulciano. Before dinner and as the sun was setting amongst the vineyard, we were treated to tour of the grounds, the production room and a full round of wine tasting.  As a result I left with an entire case of Vino Nobile.  Il Greppo wines are based on the Sangiovese grape. and their main production is Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.  We also tasted Rosso di Montepulciano, Chianti and Vin Santo. Una bella esperienza!

    I think you’re right about style being part of all things Italian!
