Witness Leonardo Da Vinci's Vineyard's Renaissance
In 1482, Leonardo da Vinci moved to Milan, where he would work for the ruling family, most famously painting his mural masterpiece, The Last Supper. What’s less known, though, is that the Renaissance genius also tended to personal grapevines in Milan. This vineyard was in existence for nearly four centuries and is located just across the street from the chapel in which Leonardo created The Last Supper. The vines were eventually abandoned and destroyed by war and fire, but incredibly, scientists recently excavated their roots, allowing them to be replanted.
