I am back at my desk now after spending a glorious 3 weeks in Tuscany . I am enjoying getting my teeth stuck into the 3 very different design projects I have going on. But first I wanted to share with you an amazing vineyard that I visited in Tuscany, Avignonesi, which was taken over about 9 years ago by a female former lawyer. She has changed the vineyard so that it operates not only on organic principles but also biodynamic ones (planting in accordance with moon cycles). Their motto is the ‘earth talks and we listen’ Something we should all do more of.
The vineyard is beautiful with the vines under sown with wild flowers and fields left to lie fallow and rest, but it also has probably the most stunningly planted car park I have ever seen, check out the photos – oh to have more like this! And how could I fail to mention that the wine is delicious!
