Montofoli from above

Some days ago, a crane came to Montofoli to prune the very tall pines. We didn’t miss the chance to take some photos from 12 meters above the Estate!

Hawks in Montofoli

Since the end of November, tree hawks are flying almost daily around Montofoli!

When we are working on the vineyard, it is a magic moment to watch a hawk fly so peacefully, with only few movements of its wings and land on the top of the tall pine located in the Estate’s entrance. Sometimes the hawks  cry  is a pleasant note to the sound of the wind.

Making Marmelades-2016

Marmalade season has officially begun!

You should scent the intoxicating aroma that comes out of the pot, it is EVERYWHERE!  Not 5 minutes after it begun boiling, bees started flying into the kitchen, drawn by the orange and lemon flavors… We had to close the windows despite the beautiful day!

The marmalade is amazing this year: the fruits were well ripe when collected, naturally sweet and deliciously aromatic! So we used less sugar than the usual recipe quantity. They were also extremely juicy, so the marmalade is rich in natural jelly along with the fruit skins.

I hope you will have the chance to taste them and give us your feedback!

Karystos in November

The beauty of the season is accentuated by the landscape of Karystos. Imagine being on the mountain in this beautiful weather with the abundance of anemones and running water.  The sea is calm and at dusk you cannot distinguish the sea from the sky, the horizon is lost.

We just can’t get enough of the calm.
