Next week, come Thursday I’ll be in Terni, Umbria, Italy, to celebrate the birthday of #winelover – the community – together with a bunch of winelovers!
Next week is Saint Valentines day and isn’t it appropriate the winelovers birthday and Valentine is connected in time and that we celebrate in Terni aka La Citta degli Innamorati or the city of lovers where Saint Valentine is belived to been born.
For this was sent on Seynt Valentyne’s day
Whan every foul cometh ther to choose his wine.
(slightly edited from Geoffrey Chaucers poem, 14th century AD)
As most legends regarding saints or other tales are at best foggy, so is also the case with Saint Valentin, there are at least three separate Saint Valentines that lived during the 3rd or 4th century AD.
When it comes choosing a wine – well let’s say I’m a bit unfaithful when it comes to wine love – but this year my wine will for sure come from Umbria.
On the program are several really exiting tastings and workshops – read about it here!
Hope to see many of you there!
