Product Description This chime is tuned to the poignant notes of an aria from La Forza del Destino (The Force of Destiny), by the great Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi. Music and wine just seem to go together. That’s why we’ve created a chime that celebrates one of the world’s most famous winemaking regions. Dotted with lush vineyards, ancient olive groves, stone farmhouses and medieval castles, the beautiful Tuscan countryside stretches from the mountains to the sea. Here, Italy’s finest wines are created according to the rhythms of nature, just as they have been for hundreds of years. May our Chimes of Tuscany accompany you as you celebrate the rhythms of nature, the force of destiny and the sounds of life. Enjoy!Over 30 years ago, Grammy award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. Fascinated by the Scale of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can’t be played on a modern piano, Garry cut and tuned the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime and is still one of our best selling, musically-tuned windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane founded Woodstock Chimes in 1979 and still develop the chimes today. It remains a family-owned business in New York’s Hudson Valley. Amazon.com This chime celebrates one of the world's great winemaking regions in both color and tone. The ash wood parts are stained a burgundy red, and the nine matte-finish aluminum tubes, in a dark grape purple, are tuned to the poignant notes of an aria by the great Italian composer, Giuseppe Verdi. An image of grapes is burned into the wooden "feather" of the chime. Measuring 27 inches in length, the chime is weather-resistant, although the wooden parts benefit from regular oiling and the aluminum tubes from occasional cleaning. Musician Gary Kvistad founded Woodstock Chimes in 1979, and today the family-owned company produces a wide range of handcrafted, precision-tuned chimes. A one-year warranty covers the chime against defects, and all tuned Woodstock Chimes come with a lifetime tuning guarantee. --Ann Bieri
