We had chosen a quite new and very trendy wine bar in Florence, the Spumantino, owned by Castello di Verrazzano.

The blog post this week will not talk much about wine, but it will talk about thoughts around Easter, typical Easter food, springtime and football in the south of Sweden. Guest blogger is Tobias Andersson, my nephew, who will be writing a standing blog post here every month about life in Skåne, the southernmost region of Sweden. Please say hello to him and follow him here. Tobias will write in Swedish, but I will provide a translation in English here.
