Traveling with a glass of wine – San Remo: the Pearl of the Riviera of the flowers

posted by Home In Italy on September 10th, 2015

Sanremo is a beautiful city located on the Mediterranean coast of western Liguria in north-western Italy, known mostly for the annual “Sanremo Music” festival. The city was founded in Roman times and it is known as “The Pearl of the Riviera of the flowers” . Indeed, Sanremo is famous all around the world for the production of flowers, cultivated on the amazing hills around. The perfume of nature and the beauty of the landscape make the city a little peace of paradise in Italy. Sanremo is a sun-dappled Mediterranean resort characterized by a series of marvelous Riviera-style villas.

Gewurztraminer Nussbaumer Tramin

One of the oldest farms in Tramin, the Nussbaumer has a long tradition of over 700 years in the cultivation of the vineyard. The selection Nussbaumer personifies all the characteristics of Sanermo: an intense, bright yellow color which recalls the shining sun and the fragrant notes that smells of rose petals and other varieties of flowers and fruits. Pleasant aromas and notes decidedly spicy, this vine is excellent as an aperitif. It is ideal with shellfish (surprising with spicy Asian cuisine) but also extraordinary alone, as a meditation wine, to accompany an unforgettable convivial moment.

Dreaming about sun… Sicily here we come!

posted by Home In Italy on February 16th, 2015

With Christmas as a vague memory, days are now slowly beginning to lengthen and although summer is still far away, our desire to travel is champing at a bit! So let’s start daydreaming and, why not, thinking about your summer holiday… because, you know, to book a holiday is never too early!

Our fist selection is the southern coast of Sicily, from Agrigento to Catania. Here, in spring time, you can already reach the shore (timidly!) and enjoy the first warm rays of the sun. Sicily is the ideal place for outdoor dining with its rich cuisine and its enchanting atmosphere between baroque and exotic.

Lying on the hills of the Etna Vulcan, Mascalucia is an excellent base for exploring the East cost and getting lost in its pistachios plantations. If you like trekking, our suggestion is to organize a daytour in the Natural Reserve “La Timpa” in Acireale: here you will see many natural phenomena summarizing the history of Etna. The natural park is the overlapping of many eruptive eras; from light grey ancient lava to the dark grey one, with special crystals of augite, typical of the more recent eruptions.

Take advantage of the proximity of Catania and spend at least one afternoon in this lovely city. Not to be missed the historic pastry laboratory of Nonna Vincenza in San Placido square, where you can taste and buy delicious pastries with almonds and pistachios, cream horns with ricotta cheese and chocolate and, of course, the famous cannoli.

Just outside Catania, you will get lost among lemon trees and gardens of historic interest. Take note of the Garden Biviere Lenitni (Siracusa), which is a spectacular Mediterranean garden created in the late Sixties. As legend would have it, in this place Hercules, son of Zeus, brought the skin of the defeated lion Nemean as a gift to Ceres, goddess of the harvest. He created a lake that was named after him: Lacus Erculeus (during centuries, the lake changed its name and Arabs called it Beveré, which means waterhole for sheep and fish). Here you can admire lush palm trees, blue Jacaranda, old roses, Yucca specimen and unusual Xanthorrea trees.

The hottest and more exotic sea of Sicily is located just south of Syracuse. Forget beach resorts and imagine yourself lying in the uncontaminated nature: the Cala di Terrauzza, the protected area of Plemmirio and the Marchesa di Cassibile beach.

And now, tell us, don’t you feel a sudden desire of Sicily? We can already perceive the smell of citrus, cannoli and chocolate while the wind is brushing the palm trees.
