Tour of Farms 2010 - Sunday, July 25

Where does my food come from? What’s it like to be a farmer? All important questions that deserve consideration. You can get the answers – and have some summer fun - at the Tour of Farms this Sunday.

Go for a drive in the country. Enjoy the fresh air. Have a picnic. Walk through a blueberry patch. Chat with a farmer. Savour a fresh raspberry. Sample local ciders and pizza too.

We're rolling Black Beauty to one of our favorite spots - Sea Cider. We'll take in the view, sip some cider and make pizza using ingredients from local farms.

Barbera Fact File

Why you should try it: soft on tannin & full of spicy dark cherry flavors, it has a shameless yum factor and - with naturally vibrant acidity - is fabulous with food (especially pizza)

Must try matches - pepperoni pizza (we suggest Luc's Pepperoni Pizza found only at Pizzeria Prima Strada of course).

Pedigree: Barbera rivals Sangiovese for most planted red in Italy; once known as "the people's wine" in the Piedmont region, Barbera d'Asti and Barbera d'Alba account for much of the red wine consumed there.

PPS offers Batasolio Sovrana Barbera d'Alba by the glass, 1/2 ltr and bottle.
