We've been hearing lots about Farmstead Wines who import handcrafted wines from small, family-owned vineyards.

Always ones to do our research, we loved the spicy, peppery Verduno Pelaverga red (served slightly chilled) from a small town in northwest Italy where many locals believe it to be an aphrodisiac.

And when you see the gorgeous family that makes the wine, you might just believe it.

Verduno Pelaverga (about $25) is available at Firefly Fine Wines, Liberty Wine Merchants (Point Grey) and Sutton Place Wine Merchant.
