Steeped in tradition and regional pride, Italy’s wine scene mirrors its vibrant culture. From the alpine vineyards of the north to the sun-drenched villas of the south, Italy’s postcard-like wineries never disappoint. And neither does Italian wine.
With up to 400 indigenous grape varietals, Italy hosts an incredible variety of wine styles to suit every palate — and there’s no better place to experience this than at the vineyard itself. Many of Italy’s estate vineyards have existed for centuries, which means that in addition to tasting some of the best wine in the world, you’ll also get tours of magnificent villas, sprawling gardens, and private art collections. Couple that with fun-loving, unpretentious locals who are always eager to share their slice of la dolce vita, and you’ve got a wine tasting destination that is truly unforgettable.
