Introduce a Friend to Italian Wines with #ItalianFWT

Introduce Your Curious Friend to Italian Wine
Italy is a country filled with wine; there are twenty regions and every single one produces wine! Of course, some are more famous than others. Italian wines have their own style and many feature grapes grown nowhere else in the world. For the newcomer, Italian wines can be a mystery. Where does one start?

Italian Food Wine and Travel to the Rescue!
Way back in 2014, Jennifer Gentile Martin gathered a group of wine bloggers and Italian Food Wine & Travel was formed.

Now we kick off 2020 with our best advice for our friends curious to learn more about Italian Wine.
