Pizza Vending Machines!
This is a city that, probably rightly so, has never fully embraced the car. Can Rome find a way to take a bite out of mechanical pizza?

Consider it all with a wine somewhere between buggy whips and mechanization! Cantina San Biagio Vecchio, a traditional family winery, is in Faenza, SE of Bologna, NE of Florence, north of Rome!


A blend of Chardonnay, Malvasia and Trebbiano. Bright yellow color, rose, berries and pineapple fragrance, orange wine, mineral, clean and easy to drink, stays on the palate in the after taste. This husband and wife winery with 6 hectares of land, home to a medieval watch tower, and vines of only native grapes.
