Italy

Despite the global stature and elite reputation carried by fine French wines, one would be hard-pressed to find a culture whose history and identity are more entwined with wine than that of Italy. In the country once called “Oenotria,” or “Land of the Vines,” by the ancient Greeks, the vine plays an important role in defining its very lifestyle. From its cool northern Alpine regions to the warm island shores of Sardinia and Sicily to the south, nearly every pocket of this almost perfectly situated, famously boot-shaped peninsula produces multiple signature wines, including robust reds, smooth whites, romantic rosés and festive sparkling wines. With over 1,000 varietals actively cultivated across more than 700,000 hectares nationwide, today’s Italian winemakers are creating interesting, sought-after modern blends that are quickly catching up to their more classic predecessors in popularity.
