Feast your eyes on this sustainable beauty covered with knotty wood planks, clinging to the hillside of Enneberg, Bozen, Italy. The Alpine House by architects Pedevilla Architekten utilized dolomite rock from on site for the foundation and local sourced solid swiss stone pine and larch throughout the construction. Besides resourcing greener materials, the next proudest feature is the distinct similarity to the ancient Les Viles typical Ladin houses. Their multiple buildings stuck into a cliff, weather-worn wooden siding, saddle roof, sweet balconies are just a few of the notable characteristics. With a few top notch responsible moves, this property was hooked up with their own water source, and by the use of geothermal energy, solar energy and a PV plant all energy is readily available for this sustainable treasure. This way our money can be better spent on things like really good wine.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
