Italy boasts one of the proudest winemaking traditions, and has more indigenous grape varieties than anywhere on earth. As a result, its wines vary hugely in style from one region and sub-region to the next. Understanding Italian wine can be tricky at first, given the country’s multitude of appellations, and an unsurprising penchant to label according to geography more so than by grape variety. Our Italian wine range covers the key regions, and will allow you to taste and enjoy a multitude of local styles and varieties.

With great tradition comes distinctive growing regions, each with their own unique process and signature blend. At the northern most part of Italy in the alps, there are special microclimates which allow vintners to produce a variety of styles, with the most popular being Piedmont and Nebbiolo. Central Italy is where you can find the powerhouses of Italian wine production. Varietals such as: Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon are produced amongst the vast rolling hills and scenic countryside. Further south near the Mediterranean, some of the most exciting blends and varieties are being produced. The southern region of Italy is undergoing a wine revolution. Native grapes such as Sicily’s Nero d’Avola and Grillo, and Campania’s Primitivo and Negroamaro produce wonderful blends with exquisite local flavor.

As you taste through the diverse geographic regions of Italy, you will come to understand why each indigenous grape and climate is so special.
