Bring Italians to Your Holiday Feast

Whether you are in charge of bringing the wine or providing the food, liven up the experience this year and bring some Italians to the table! The Old World wines of Italy have never been more popular, and it is for good reason.  The 20 wines regions of Italy offer an enormously diverse range of varietals, that due to the different terroirs, offer unique blends of tannins, acids, and sugar levels that pair perfectly with food.  The Old World Italian wines are crafted to accompany food.  There is an Italian wine for every dish!

I have been very fortunate to have met 10 marvelous winemaking families from 6 very different wine regions of Italy.  It is with great pride that I am able to offer their wines to you for your enjoyment with your holiday festivities.  On behalf of their families and mine, Buon Natale and Buon Anno!
