The road to Ca' Lustra vineyard

Legend says that Judas hung himself in despair from a tree similar to this, and as he died the tree wept tears of blood turning its white blossom red.

This tree has a happier purpose, greeting visitors to the Ca’ Lustra vineyard at Faedo. Buttercups litter the grass and sunlight kisses the blossom as it dances in the breeze.
