We heard of Spello, but not Bevagna. In your opinion, what makes either or both of these locations worth visiting?

Wink, you're very kind to leave such a glowing comment. And you're right, Italy is truly a gem, a country that literally sweats rich and vibrant culture. There are so many places to explore in this world, and so many wines and foods to discover, that I can only hope our adventures are only beginning ;)

Judith, it was a pleasure to meet you there as well! And hopefully, we have more time to chat next time our paths cross, whether it's in Gubbio or another region entirely :)

Glad you had such a great time. We truly wish we could have been there, albeit a little out of our niche, it would have been a great experience to extend both our friendships and our palates. Look forward to your write-up!

From my understanding, it's a batch number for the labels. The label only has a 5 digit numerical code, which requires the consejo to add letters as well. Therefore, whenever 10,000 bottles are labeled, they need to change the lettering/numbering for quality control and tracking purposes, in much the same way a serial code functions for your car.

As for the hologram, it is intended to change to a funky "designer" hologram in October/November of 2009. What that exactly means? No idea, but when it comes out, we'll be sure to let you know ;-) I hope that helps.

Trish, Clearly it depends on where you are located, but if you are Stateside, you may want to check out the Spanish Tienda ( Mind you, El Gaitero is not a "traditional" dry cider, but it's tasty all the same. If you're located elsewhere, let us know and we'll see if we can't hunt some down for you :-)
