the prosecco road, film III. from Feletto to Refrontolo

one last glimpse to the pieve, and we are on the road again, heading to Refrontolo. but the monumental church keeps watching us running, from its dominant position on the hill behind our backs.

this is my favorite part of the prosecco road, and spring is the perfect season to appreciate it at its best, with all the wild flowers in bloom.

Refrontolo is locally famous for a straw wine called Marzemino, or Refrontolo passito, and for a charming water mill, hidden in the trees, at the foot of one hill. this is the Molinetto della Croda, a rare example of rural architecture, built on the sixteenth century. 
it was active until 1953, and the millstone is still working.  it's now used for local fairs, like the celebration of harvest in october, aiming to keep the old milling tradition alive.

the music of water, the enchanted, timeless atmosphere.. the place has a fairytale charm, don't you think?
