A story behind every sip. The world through wine.

In the Land of Plenty

Masseria Torre Maizza

A masseria is a farm or country house on a country estate in Puglia, southern Italy. Masseria lodging ranges from rustic to luxurious and are set in working farms producing olive oil, wine, or produce. This one was most definitely luxurious, most relaxingly scenic.

Three wineries. Three origin stories. Three pockets of one of the world’s most northerly wine regions. One beautiful, finicky grape. It’s an interesting time in the Okanagan Valley, Canada.
