from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. Same as vineyard.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
S.uola of S. Mark; under the bridge with a pretty Madonna on it; and so up the Rio dei Mendicanti, passing on the left a wineyard with two graceful round arches in it and then a pleasant garden with a pergola, and then a busy squero with men always at work on gondolas new or old.
What he doesn't understand is that when the brothel and wineyard industries collapse, other sectors will benefit from it.
