cabfrancfreak Speaking of volcanoes... Today I learned from Frank (Cornelissen) that the best terroirs of Mt Etna are located in the northern valley | It faces a chain of mountains which creates a microclimate that fits the vineyards best #volcanicwine #volcano #wine #etna #sicily #naturalwine #vinnature #vinnaturel #cff_juice #tokyo #japan 2w

  •   tonyangeloproductions if you are at all into documentaries touching on important, relevant issues, you should check out the instagram page if you have a minute. There's a lot of other stuff as well such as books, music, etc. It would be much appreciated either way. 2w
