The concept of vintage already existed, as the ancient books report that the fabled Opimiam wine of 121 B.C., an excellent vintage of Falernum, was aged and drunk decades later. 

This red thread that leads to modern times was never cut, though invasions, wars and fights split the country into city states, duchies, kingdoms along two thousand years of entangled events . 

Enjoy a glass of History!

During the summers  of the 50’s and 60’s Italians used to eat under the beach umbrella, preparing at home some food that could be easily carried and consumed on the lap . This food was usually made from leftovers of the dinner, recycled into meatballs, vegetable omelettes, cold pasta, cold rice with vegetables and salty pies. 

Only later came the bars and the take-aways on the beach, with their sandwiches and microwave meals.  Lack of time nowadays have changed our habits, most people buying industrial made dishes, the American way, and the results have been the waste of food and the epidemic of obesity among the young.
