One of the most beautiful things about Italian wines is their ability to demonstrate the passion, love, and dedication that the people have for their land and for their wines. Italians are known for being romantics and know they just how to woo you - with their Amarones, Barolos, Chiantis, and tasty frizzante wines! We go from north to South, and even some island hopping over to Sicily, as we discover just how different the wines change from region to region. We taste 6 different wines, learn how to read labels and about these fascinating Italian varietals. 

This is part 2 of a 4 part series that explores the major wine making regions of Europe. Join us as we fly through the historic vineyards of France, the beautiful countryside of Italy, learn about the traditional winemaking techniques of Spain and Portugal, and finish with the many beautiful and high-quality wines from Germany and Austria.
