Visiting wineries edition VIII

Andar per cantine 2073 In a successful book of 2003 titled «Cunicoli e lapilli. Ischia, conigli e dintorni», I so explained some curious aspects of the island. Ischia – I wrote among other things – “is a land of Lilliput and lapilli, burrows, tunnels, holes, ditches, cellars, wine presses, niches, caves, caverns, caves, caves, cavities, hideouts, shelters, woods, shadows, channels , tanks, wells, moons, craters, shower heads, hollows, caves, thickets, ravines, gullies, veins, groundwater, springs, tuffs scratched, stone houses.

Confirming and in spite of the magmatic and pyretic virtue of its mining and spa belly, its solar and blue hilly and maritime surface, fabulous and tourist, Ischia is an underground and hidden island. It is perforated like a Swiss cheese from volcanoes, tribes and beasts that, for millennia share the domain in a mix now supernatural, now human, too human, man-made in excess. In addition, with a continuous history of deep and linear excavations, twisted and mysterious, kilometers long and epic. Jagged mountains from Ischians in order to create cave dwellings and rural shelters to evade pirates, places and deposits of immediate vitality, like the one that drives the wine left to ferment or to refine the fresh chipped of thousand cellars bordering Hades...».
Thousands of basements and cellars: it is true, are everywhere. In addition, to be discovered. Moreover, there is the idea of ​​a journey, a path and a necessary research into the bowels of Ischia with smell of wine, to know better the true personality. An idea and concrete itinerary, just through a successful initiative as Cantine aperte
, from September 13 to 20, organized by Leonardo Polito in association with the Pro Loco of Panza, is realized in a triumph of pleasure and infectious fun. A toast: “Bless you!” In all languages ​​of the world. (Ci. Cen.)
