Fun Facts: These old Carignane vines charm me like no other vines. They are large tree-like beasts that I can almost stand under. There is a certain magic and timelessness that they have, almost an aura about them. I like to think about the Greek brothers whose hands planted these vines, their families who lived on the same property, and all of the lives that have come and gone and been provided for by these beautiful creatures.
