“We could be like two people who inject themselves with truth serum, and at long last have to tell it – the truth I want to be able to say to myself, “I bled truth with her,” yes, that’s what I want. Be a knife for me, and I, I swear, will be a knife for you”

Oppidum wine is an all-embracing love declaration at distancelikewise the one told by David Grossman in the book “Be my knife” from which the excerpt is. The book focuses on the private world between Yair and Myriam which jointly discover the pleasure of opening their senses in the human relations, the sensuality of words, the taste of intense feelings, the ability to open holes where no one has managed.

Be my knife is a delicate yet sublime story, with aromas like wilted rose, apricot, that conducts where no one has dared, that leaves an intense almond flavour in each paragraph– For this specific reason, we have chosen Oppidum wine of Cantina Sant’Andrea to literally be inebriated by Grossman’s book. When talking about Oppidum wine, we talk about Muscat of Terracina vine, grown in the vineyards of Cantina Sant’Andrea – the extraordinary vine Muscat of Terracina is the result of a history of courage, like in the correspondence thread of ‘Be my knife’. Only taking courageous choices, being fascinated by what it is beyond, we can have a meaningful mission, as the shown by Cantina Sant’Andrea winery.
