Italy! The Land of the Vine, according to the ancient Greeks; nowhere else is wine so closely intertwined with daily life than in every village throughout the Italian peninsula – not even France.
Italy is one of the oldest wine-producing regions in Europe. The ancient Greeks colonized southern Italy and brought viticulture to the country. Nowhere else is there such an enormous array of excellent native grape varieties. Some of the globe’s best reds and whites come from Italy. We carry a comprehensive selection of Italian wine from every one of Italy’s 19 wine regions. The top red varieties in Italy are Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Montepulciano, Corvina and Barbera. These grapes produce legendary wines like Brunello, Barolo, Barbaresco and Amarone. The major white grapes are Pinot Grigio, Trebbiano, Malvasia, Moscato, Greco, Arneis, Garganega and Grechetto. The whites are often complex and delightfully crisp.
