I’ve been fortunate enough to be included in the grape harvest (Vendemmia) and the olive harvest of the Resti family who produces several grape products (wine, vinsanto) and olive oil going by the name, Il Resti. The original owner, Renato, now in his 90’s, works alongside his family on the farm, never hesitating to tell you the enchanting story of how it all began. Renaldo and his wife still live in the nearby medieval hilltop town of Laterina (pictured below). The farm is located in the dreamy Tuscan countryside of Pergine Valdarno and is rich with life, laughter, and love.
