There seems to be some real good energy being generated by the youth of Italy in regards to a more resilient response to their common condition. True, the youth of Italy have had their future somewhat hijacked by Berlusconi’s Italy. Italy still has way too many dinosaurs who are still in charge and who are just running out the clock. The youth are now on to them and they have time on their side. So they are playing a little waiting game and letting the clock run out. Youth will win. Berluconi will lose. I, as well, am tired with the world being run by wealthy, old white men.
Organic is becoming more and more prevalent in the vineyards. People are seeing the benefits, both economically and esthetically, to farming with fewer chemicals. For all we know it’s too late to save the earth, but those who are trying are giving their hearts and souls into farming in a less intrusive and more instinctive manner. Wine is made in the vineyard and this is a great direction I am seeing in even some of the very large producers.
