Tuscan Idyll: Fattoria Lavacchio has been our vineyard home in Chianti for nearly 20 years. Our frequent visits there have provided my family, our guests, and Cafe Capriccio staff with immeasurable pleasure and inspiration that informs our work in Albany. The photo below is an idyllic image of a summer day in a corner of the estate that brilliantly illustrates the profound beauty of the Tuscan countryside. Franco and I will soon be there again with some of our family for a “working holiday.” Look for Cafe Capriccio’s autumn menu to reflect Tuscan-lessons learned in the year of Our Lord, 2018. Amen!
