Biking to the vineyard.

We were so excited this weekend when the restaurant we took Mom to for Mother's Day had wine from the vineyard we toured in Italy.
We biked through the country to get to the vineyard, where they also grew olive trees and pressed olive oil!  It was not an easy ride, but was well worth it to see the picturesque sites, eat a huge delicious lunch, tour the winery, and sample great wine and olive oil.

Some of my favorite Italian food was eaten at the vineyard:  pasta with ricotta and tomatoes, and a hearty bread and tomato soup.
