Photo contest - summer 2012 - the winner

Concorso fotografico estate 2012 - il vincitore

In 2012 we invited our guests to participate in a photo contest: the best photo of Poggerino and surroundings would receive three magnum bottles of Poggerino Riserva “Bugialla 2008. Here are the photos that we have received. Thanks to everybody, some pics are really nice and it was not easy to choose the winner!

After some discussion we decided to award the prize to Johan & Liesbet Nys-Geuens from Belgium. The photo- which was taken in July 2012 in front of our office- shows their dog Whisky surrounded by flowers, and the sunny background of the beautiful Tuscan landscape with vineyards and cypresses. Even if we normally do not accept animals at the B&B (not because we don't love them, of course!), Whisky was an exception. Because of his advanced age it was not possible to leave him at home so he was our "special guest" twice at Poggerino and we all remember him for always being very kind and polite to everybody. Unfortunately last September Whisky passed away with much sadness to Johan and Liesbet. So, this is how we like to remember him: in a sunny summer day enjoying the Tuscan countryside
