A Little ABOUT Italian Wine
The history of Italian wine stretches back millennia. Its origins can be traced all the way to ancient Rome, where it was held in high esteem not only as a commodity but also a status symbol. As the Roman Empire expanded, and viticulture further flourished thanks to its many conquered goods, Italian wine production reached a pinnacle of refinement and excellence. This has been sustained up until today, and regional specialties such as Barolo and Chianti remain unparalleled by their peers throughout the world; nothing quite compares to a bottle uncorked in its native country, from whose soil its story originates. One sip is all it takes to understand why Italians take such pride in their winemaking tradition!
