Kreos, from Eos, a figure of Greek mythology, goddess of the dawn, sister of Helios (the sun) and of Selene (the moon). Every morning the goddess used to weep inconsolably for the death of her son, killed by Achilles during the siege of Troy, and her tears form the dew. Homer called her the goddess with the rosy finger because of the effect seen in the sky at dawn.
|Located near the bucolic town of Salice Salentino in Puglia, the "heel” of "Italy’s boot” which is an idyllic spot situated between the Adriatic and Tirrenean seas, is the new property of Castello Monaci. The eponymous castle is nestled amid groves of centuries old olive trees, and a long road slices straight through the estate’s 150 hectares of vineyards, forming what Monaci terms a meridian, an imaginary line which is the highest point in the sky reached by the sun.
