Matt and I went to Ostuni, a city all in white that sits near the Adriatic Sea in the Puglia region of Italy, to attend a wedding.  A few hours before the post-rehearsal party, it was discovered that the hosts had forgotten the wine!  Matt and I found a charming little store that was set to reopen after siesta at 3:00.  Already in the flow of the slower pace of life here, we waited patiently. Around 3:30, the proprietor rolled up on his scooter.  After sampling the wine selection, we walked out with a case mixed with reds and whites and some freebies thrown in too.  We were a welcome sight to the party guests and everyone spent the rest of the evening talking and sipping wine on the rooftop in the middle of town.
