Wines of Italy: An In-Depth 3 part Exploration of Italian Wine February 24th - March 10th
Italy! The Land of the Vine, according to the ancient Greeks; nowhere else is wine so closely intertwined with daily life in every village throughout the Italian peninsula - not even France. Nowhere else is there such an enormous array of excellent native grapes.
