Italian Wineries

Italy is now approaching forty thousand wine labels throughout the country. Relish the days of discovering new labels that become your favorite. Learn and understand the different types of grapes and how they constitute a separate category of wines and grapes.

The Experience

Many wineries will coordinate their wines with Michelin ranked dining for lunch or dinner. Learn the art of wine-tasting by identifying your favorite wines, cheeses, and olive oils, and wine pairings from each region and learn of their distinctions. Take in the country by enjoying day trips to multiple wineries is what we would call “a day to look forward to”.

Planning a wine tasting day is to remove yourself from any cares except for taste exploration where patrons will discover their pallet and identify their favorite types and brands of wine and food pairings. Whatever region or destination you’re in, there will almost certainly be a winery nearby.

The Wine Regions

In the Chianti region in Tuscany, the focus is on the “Super Tuscans”. The Piedmont region is known for the tiny but historic towns of Borrallo, and Borrasso with their famous “Nebbiolo” grape – which are fast becoming identified as being one of the world’s best wine regions. 

Asti is home to the fast-growing Sparkling Wine category also in Piedmont to go along with Truffle hunting which is prevalent in the Langhe Valley region. 

Bolgheri, on the Tuscan Seacoast, boasts the most expensive wines on most menus with their red blends of Cabernet, Merlots, and Petit Verdot

The altitudes of Trento Alta Adige, Friuli G.V. and Mount Etna in Sicily win the prizes for the best light white wines. 

Liguria is known for their Vermentino grapes and Lombardy has multitudes of different high elevation regions that produce the light white wines along with the Garda Classicos.
