Tour the Italian peninsula with its native grapes as your guide. Did you know that Italy holds the world record for the most indigenous varieties in the world, numbering over 300 officially grown grape varieties on its diverse lands? Fantastico! Delve into the cultures of the Phoenicians, Greeks, Roman and the Goths that have shaped Italian wine traditions, as you sip and savour some lesser known drops.
