Tuscan Sun Wines
If you are familiar with the book and film, Under the Tuscan Sun, you know the author, Frances Mayes.

Frances has managed to inspire many a soul to travel in search of themselves.  Whether they found their way to Tuscany, India, the tip of South America or their own backyard,  Frances’ message that happiness lies within you, your family and friends … in your home … has resounded over and over.

It is along that philosophy that she and husband, Edward Mayes, have nurtured their own home life so lovingly.  Their home in Cortona hosts two to three dinners a week with friends.  Their garden supplies the vegetables, Ed Mayes’ olive groves produce their own Tuscan Sun Olive Oil and the rest of the ingredients are gathered on daily trips into town.  Forging relationships over the family dining table serving delicious, fresh food is a major part of their lives.   It is no wonder that the newest addition to their table is their own brand of wines which will be making its debut in the main square of Cortona on the 4th of July. The wines, which will be imported into the United States in September, will be poured for the town to taste.
