A taste of the sweet life

Azille & her vineyards


Local wines abound here in Azille, and we have close relationships with several wine-makers who allow us to share their wares and imbibe with our meals!

As it is now fall, the leaves are turning and the vines are multi-coloured.  The 'Vin Nouveau' is out and the hot, mulled wine - red & white - is on the table, warming our toes and pleasing our palettes.  If you want to have a taste, our friends and family Celian & Sonia Parra, owners and producers of Domaine La Parra wines & olive oil, are right next door.  Here, at La Dolce Vita, we have many of their varieties & blends available to taste and buy. But if you want a true experience we'll schedule a personalized tasting in Parra's own small 'cave', where you'll find old-style, hand-presses for both the grapes and the olives - you may even get to have a few turns and create your own juice!  Whatever is available will be at your beck-and-call for tasting and taking home with you.  With enough advance notice, we can organize the creation of your very own wine label as well.  A personal experience not to be missed!

It is truly the perfect time of year to visit Azille, to see the change in seasons and really relax under the autumn sky, taking a long walk in the area amongst the vineyards and ancient olive trees!
