From the alps to sicily, passing over hills and through breathtaking landscapes, the long stretches of vineyards are proof of Italy’s long-standing wine-making tradition. an age-old tradition that recounts the story of an abundant variety of grape types and an equally vast variety of wines, second to no other country in the world. there are over three-hundred different types of grapes specifically grown for wine in Italy and every region characterizes either one or several specific types of wine. and so Italy’s wines continue to represent a cornerstone in the wine-making industry consistent with its Mediterranean roots.
