Stray Pecorino Vines = Homemade Grape Syrup

During our visit to the vineyard last night, Buttercup and I discovered four or five wayward pecorino vines… smack dab in the middle of the Montepulciano vines.  (It happens.)

Obviously, these didn’t make it into the grapes we sold after Wednesday’s harvest.  But they did all get picked, and were (relatively) quickly turned into a really beautiful and delicious pecornio syrup.  We’re thinking we’ll get some gelato, sprinkle some toasted nuts on top, and then drizzle with our “Tutto Doppio Pecorino Syrup.”  Right?!?
