The Food: Cellar

The items from the garden are canned, fermented, stored and otherwise preserved in a small sub-level room just off of the kitchen. The contents include carrots, parsnips, tomato juice, zacusca and other preserves, to be eaten throughout the winter.

The smaller room in the back is the wine cellar, where Iuliana’s father creates his sweet red wine. To harvest the wine from the large glass fermentation jugs, one must run a tube from the wine to a pan. A little suck is needed to get the flow going (which Ergo had mastered)
