A stately house on the edge of Lake Geneva, ringed by Swiss Alps so picturesque they look painted on the sky, in 1816 Villa Diodati hosted a group of travellers whose time there would forever be marked in history. As storms raged outside, in its candlelit rooms Mary Shelley conceived of her mad scientist and his iconic monster. Down the hall, poor Doctor Polidori (who was hopelessly in love with Mary and possibly Byron), was penning a little story that would inspire another little story. Bram Stoker’s Dracula. You may have heard of it.

An ode to the alpine landscape that inspired Mary Shelley and which plays an almost palpable role in her novel.

Notes: pungent wild rosemary and fresh balsam pine, crystal clear lakewater, dry, dark vanilla
