Tuscan Vinter Hat

Spring/Summer 1986 and Spring 1988. From the catalogue: “We originally saw this hat on the head of a winemaker taking a stroll through his rocky Chianti vineyard. But like all sturdy vinatges, it travels well, as one of the country’s leading vintners confirmed.” The catalogue goes on to quote famed Northern California winemaker Robert Mondavi who pronounces “It’s like a fine Cabernet Sauvignon: understated, long-loved, and a little tough.”
