13 Oct 5 Great Resources for Wine Lovers
It’s no secret that we love a good wine here at Le Pratola. We are, after all, nestled in the glorious Tuscan hills, surrounded by fields of vines as far as the eye can see. There’s even a wine named after our villa.
But as much as we love wine, we do sometimes find it difficult to decide which wine to choose when in a restaurant or to serve with dinner at home. If you find yourself in the same predicament, why not try one of these fantastic resources made especially for wine lovers?
