This is where the absolutely delicous little guide explained about the "canava" and how all the merchant houses had the thick roofs and the tapered walls, natural ventilation - yep everyone should have one (forget about the French underground caves - get youself a Canava!!).

Crusty bits of bread and some decent samples - HIC! HIC! I think they gave us a bit more that the normal quota - but the usual price, at the time of writing, was 3 euros for 3 samples and some nibbly bits thrown in.

By all accounts if you happen to visit during the grape-crushing season you might be invited to take your shoes and socks off and add your own personal bit of flavour to next year's vintage!!!

Address: Just Off The Square in Melagorichi...
Directions: ...follow the signs - every one leads to the vinyard!!! Or follow your nose!!

Not only that but the village is well worth a visit - drop into one of the local tavernas on the square have a BEER ;)
