Mad Farmer

YIMG_4075ou don’t have to wander far to hear a great story. Take the one about the “Mad Farmer” who bought land in Piedmont, Italy, when he was 24 years old. That action alone created quite a stir. The Mad Farmer was a loner who liked to do things his way. For instance, he planted in sync with the moon’s cycle. Needless to say, he never married. But twenty years later, he produced the most magnificent wine that became famous in the region. It went by a name that sounded like a Renaissance painter or a member of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers.
