You know the type of restaurant you can expect to see when you’re in the country: a cozy, laid-back place where you can sit down for a drink, eat a plate of food, and chat with the owners.
But at the Tuscany villa that houses the world’s largest wine collection, you can feel the tension and the stress of trying to get a reservation.
At its peak in 2015, the villa had roughly 20,000 wine bottles.
But in May, the wine cellar was ransacked and some 20,500 bottles were destroyed.
After years of working with the estate to restore the wine, the Tuskas are hoping to return to the estate.
But it’s still not easy to book a private dinner or dinner with the people who once owned the estate, including some of the richest people in the world.
We caught up with the Tuscan and Tuscanaan brothers, who own the villas, to learn more about what went wrong and what’s being done to make the Tussa a safer place to eat and drink.
Tuscan vs. Tuscayan: Where did the wine come from?
The wine collection was originally created in the late 19th century, so there is a lot of history.
It was actually imported from Spain.
But because of the economic situation and the fact that we had to import a lot to sell, we decided to start from scratch and open a brand-new wine cellar.
We started from scratch because it was the right time.
In Italy, it’s important to start small.
I want to start as small as possible and build it up, and that’s what we’ve done.
How big is the wine collection?
It’s approximately 100,000 bottles, including the vast majority of the best and most popular wines in the region.
What are the rules?
You can only order a wine if you live in the villare, so you need to be over the age of 21.
When do you open?
It opens up in late August, and the wines come out in October.
It’s a very small place.
We are the only ones who have the space.
What’s the atmosphere like?
It feels very relaxed.
There are no bad vibes.
What can you expect when you walk in?
There are a lot more people.
We’re a small community, but we’re still a very intimate place.
There is a communal kitchen.
It is a very welcoming environment.
It feels like the family.
There’s a lot going on in there.
Is it difficult to book private dinners?
There is no shortage of wine, and we’re working hard to make it even better.
The Tuskans are working to make things as comfortable as possible.
How do you make sure people don’t try to buy?
We have an amazing wine cellar, so we always try to make sure we are doing our best to make our wine safe.
You can always tell who’s a member of the family, and you don’t have to worry about anyone trying to buy from you.
What do you tell the guests when you ask them to buy a bottle?
When you ask for a bottle, it has to be a wine you want to purchase.
You don’t need to say that it’s not a wine.
It has to have a label.
We always give a full description.
Is there a strict policy about the size of the wine?
We always try and keep the cellar small.
You always want to avoid things like wine glasses.
If we have a large bottle, we always ask people to buy smaller ones.
When I ask people for a wine glass, they say: No, thank you.
It makes it more difficult for people to try and buy.
Is the wine kept in a safe place?
The wine cellar is completely enclosed, and there is also a fireproof wall between the two rooms.
We also have a glassware room, which is a separate room, with a glass and a wineglass.
What happens if you leave a bottle at the village?
The bottles are destroyed, so they can’t be sold or used for any purpose.
What about guests who come over and don’t want to go inside?
The villa is closed to guests who do not live in it, so people can’t go inside.
What is the best way to handle a bottle that has not been used?
When the wine is empty, we have people working very hard to try to keep it from breaking.
How many people can a villa handle?
We are very small, so it can only handle one person.
The idea is to get people in and out quickly.
How much does the wine cost?
The average price for a typical bottle is about $150.
Is that the same for wine?
The price varies from person to person, and depends on the
