What a Surprise!
O.M.G. I got the best surprise ever last year in July, I still think about it today because I’m now officially a raving fan! Read on if you want some tips on how to turn customers into raving fans.
In the summer of 2013, my family and I visited La Vialla. La Vialla is a family-run business in Castiglion Fibocchi, Italy. It’s the largest Demeter certified surface area in Europe and produces its own wine, extra virgin olive oil, pecorino cheese, appetizers, sauces, pasta, vinegar, honey, biscuits and other sweet delicacies.
They own an area of 1,342 hectares/3,316 acres in the Chianti region of Tuscany and other than their farm, restaurant and store, they rent out vacation homes. You have to reserve well in advance to book a home though, especially during the peak seasons.
So, in 2013, one of my best friends asked us to come along. With 2 other couples, we rented 2 houses right next to one another and spent a wonderful 2 weeks in Tuscany.
