En personlig blog for Henrik Koudahl. Her skriver jeg om de ting, der har min interesse. En cocktail der indeholder emner, der dækker over alt lige fra iværksætteri og Italien til emner inden for mad og vin.

Slow Food

In Italy, more than in most countries, life is lived at a leisurely pace. One of the very good reasons for this is that food is considered very important. Rather than complicated formulas, an Italian from any region respects the quality and freshness of the ingredients, and treats both with respect.

One too many

Never a day pass, in which we don't hear about accidents, hit-and-run and Saturday night tragedies here in Italy and it's often alcohol which gets the blame. A sore point which won't go away with schocking headlines and talk show discussions.

A procession from San Giovese

Sangioveto is the life blood of the middle of Italy. That vast region that goes from Romagna to Alta Tuscia. It is a strange wine and its origins are still uncertain. It might be that it is a domestication of vitis silvetris which the Etruscans used to make wine.

Solar energy in the Italian wine sector

Driving around Italy I have been wondering how few wine-producers use solar energy. I am still surprised when I see a solar energy used in Italy even that I know that ENEL had been promoting it for some years now. Last year did Settesoli finish a project together with Enel in Tuscany, where they installed new photovoltaic at the Cascina. The 5 photovoltaic installations of the Settesoli cellars are all equipped with a system of telemonitoring, with a potency of 250kWp. In Italy they represent the largest photovoltaic situation in the wine-producing sector.
