Inaugrual Harvest!

Tomorrow we’ll have our first vendemmia (grape harvest) here at Tutto Doppio. First up: our beloved pecorino — a very cool white grape indigenous to this area, and brought back from the brink of obscurity about 35 years ago.

Weather delayed us by a couple of days, but everything looks good for the morning. We’re excited, a bit nervous, and very thankful that we will get by with a little help from our friends. Stay tuned!

Y’all may be getting sick and tired of pictures of the view here at TD. If so, skip the pics and come check it out in real life!

This one is the view from my office this evening. Pretty. Amazing.

We are slated for Tutto Doppio’s first vendemmia (pecorino grapes) next Monday.  Very exciting, and we’re sure that we will get some nice pics.  Until then, it appears we’re going to overwhelm y’all with either pictures of the sunset or pictures of the dogs. 

This time it’s the latter: a session from this morning’s trip to Mi Fido dog and cat spa in Grottammare.  The owner, Luigi, is so calm and friendly with all of the critters… a nice fellow!

G doesn’t like me taking pictures of her, so the dogs get their portraits done today.  Why is everyone so serious?

Friends of a Friend

Sometimes your friends’ friends make you scratch your head and ask, “How could *they* be a friend of [ insert good friend’s name here].  But other times the head scratching is about why you’ve never met the friend of your friend before.

We had THE BEST time with Natalie and Bernie, who until the moment they arrived were only friends of a friend.  After a quick 24 hour stay with us, however, we’re now like family.  We had a great time – seafood for lunch down at the sea, then dinner back at Tutto Doppio, with lots of talking and shared chores in between – that came to an end all too quickly.

In fact, we were having so much fun that we forgot to get a picture of Bernie.  Either that, or he’s in the Federal Witness Protection Program.  I am sure not going to be the one to say.

We miss you guys!
