Ciao Bella

Hello Beautiful! That is the translation of Ciao Bella, and how beautiful is this handcrafted work of ar... Sorry started salivating. Anyway,there is this winery in Escondido where they make this awesome pizza outdoors with a brick oven. I was interested in how they kept the heat going, if it was a specific wood or something, and he said it was avocado wood... I know weird right? So I asked why, and he said that the winery used to be an avocado grove and that avocados are like the thirstiest trees and they couldn't afford to keep them; they wanted to build a winery anyway. So they chopped them down and planted grapes and have yet to run out of firewood since. I'll try to post more of the grounds a bit later but enjoy this shot until then.


Let me know what you think.
