Prada and the Police

June 1, 2020

It seems almost ironic that during the current situation, it also happens to be Local Community History Month and Share A Story Month in the UK.We’ve been keeping exceptionally busy at home in Worcestershire, but we have often found our minds wandering to what we are missing over in Le Marche. We’ve talked endlessly about how well our vines will be holding up, fending for themselves without our continued attention, lots of chat about the wine still in the tanks waiting to be bottled, and of course, when we will get the chance to return.
Our Ten Tips For Getting Through This Isolation Period

March 30, 2020

Well, here we go into our second week of isolation, only another predicted 12-14 to go! I think last week was a little trial really, with homeschooling, working from home, and for some a house full of family members. As the weeks go on I’m sure it will all get easier, we’ll get into a routine, become more patient and tolerant...and above, all get super fit and with all our ‘pandemic projects’ done.
