I visited Bibenda during a recent family vacation to Italy, which provided wonderful balance during our day trip to Assisi. We sat and enjoyed our charming hostess, and a selection of her wonderful wines served with lovely local cheeses and prosciutto to renew our palates, after exploring some of the wonderful sights in the famous "city of peace." Nila knows wine, and she has a great selection of both local table wines to enjoy during the trip and premium and reserve wines from several regions of Italy to take home as souvenirs. My brother, who is a vinophile, was able to get an aerator, which he hadn't been able to find at several fine wine shops in the states. All this, while enjoying a respite from the heat of the afternoon in her atmospheric shop in a wine cellar with a vaulted brick ceiling. Both the beautiful 'mountain town' of Assisi and Bibenda were highlights of our trip to Italy.
