We're always happy to see my husband's family when we arrive in his home village and very grateful for
everything they do for us when we're not there; the necessary paperwork involved with owning an Italian property, looking after the vines and the house etc. As well as milk, there was fresh produce awaiting us and some wine from last year's grape harvest. Together with store cupboard provisions we're able to eat well.
Next day we went to our nephew's delicatessen in the village for lunch supplies. He specialises in local and regional produce.
