ll Paradiso di Frassina
Just below the tiny hillside village of Montalcino we toured a unique vineyard........
What started as an experiment of music in the vineyards has become a phenomenal research project in farming without the use of pesticides...not to mention an award winning Brunello! Carlo Cignozzi was like a proud father showing off his family of wines and explaining the history of his music concept. Along with Bose - yes, all the speakers in the fields are Bose - and the University of Florence, Mozart in Vigna might just be saving our environment from dangerous pesticides. So the next time the bugs are swarming around you on the patio, just crank up the Mozart!!!
