HappyEnzo Brezza, at Centro Storico in Serralunga, satisfied and content with the fruits of his labor. (This is the face of the unmistakable, delirious, happy fatigue at the end of harvest.)

We have the following saying on the front of the AI Selections price book this month:

“One should always be drunk.  That’s all that matters.  But with what?  With wine, with poetry or with virtue, as you choose.  But get drunk.”

–Charles Baudelaire

I love this because it reminds me that we should always throw ourselves recklessly into whatever we do.  Let the things you love move you, inspire you, and shape you.  

Get drunk.

About The Author

I love all things Italian: the beautiful country of Italia, the Italians themselves, the language, the food… and above all, I love Italian wine. The people I meet in my charmed life are fascinating, the wines are extraordinary. I needed a special place like this to write about them, and to remember them.

    Centro Storico looks awesome, we’ll have to check that out soon! And I love the look on his face, that’s a man who’s finally relaxing after a few weeks’ hard work…
