The Wine and Architecture of Puglia

The Wine and Architecture of Puglia – short film n. 3

Most of us would argue that the definition of a great wine is when it comes from a specific place, and that it couldn’t from anyplace else. But is that true of culture, or just the land? And what about architecture? And building materials?

All of this is answered in less than 4 minutes. These little films are really starting to find themselves too, so now they are seen over 10,000 times each and our regional television company is rebroadcasting them in Italy.

Not bad, consider I learned it all on YouTube.

We’re relaunching our site, the first time in almost 15 years. It was about time. If you have any suggestions for the new one let us know what you think.

And be certain to leave comments on these short films on YouTube. The more you like them, share them on social and leave comments, the more others will enjoy them too. This part of the world deserves more attention, especially when it comes from the right-minded traveller. If you know some, be certain to share.
