Handpainted Italian Terracotta Story of Winemaking Tiles


This set of four hand-painted terracotta tiles tells the story of winemaking from the harvest through the drinking! First, is “La Vendemmia” or grape harvest; then “Lo Strettoio” pressing the grapes; next “La Mescita” tapping the barrel; and finally “Il Saggio Bevitore” the wise man says “un bicchiere di vino fa buon sangue” or a glass of wine is good for your health. A very wise man!

These hand-painted tiles are perfect for a wine cellar or for any room that needs a little colorful character. Suitable for outdoor use only in mild climates. Each tile has a hefty wire hanger.

These tiles are handcrafted by a small workshop in Montelupo, Tuscany. Since they are handcrafted, slight variations should be expected.

Dimensions: each tile is approximately 6” w x 1” deep x 12” h.
