Gadino Cellars: A Family Tradition Washington, VA Imagine, if you will, a classic movie. The camera pans across the scenery of an old Italian vineyard. You see ancient, stone buildings alongside the sun-bleached vines where the family has gathered to celebrate the harvest. They’re sharing some time together. Some good food. Some good wine. Everyone feels welcome. Now, Washington, Virginia may not be northern Italy (it’s a little more humid than Italy). The buildings aren’t nearly as old and things aren’t quite so bleached by the Mediterranean sun. The feeling of family and being welcomed, how ..read more
