Bruno, a grape grower and concrete manufacturer, showed us all around his property and introduced us to his lovely family. He even showed off his 1960s Lancia, complete with rich brown leather seats and a glamorous steering wheel. It is my fantasy to tour all of Tuscany in that car, with Bruno at the helm - letting me in on all his old haunt secrets -- where he buys cigars and takes his espresso. Olga and Giulio, his grandchildren, were so inviting . . . We spent the afternoon exchanging stories and I was so lucky to listen to their description of their family's traditions, life and ambitions. We meandered in the afternoon sun and through the vineyards. What a dream!
