    Are you a wine aficionado or even just a casual wine-drinker? Do you want to learn more about Italian grapes and Italian wines? Well, today is your lucky day! A new book entitled "Italian Wine Unplugged Grape by Grape" and a new podcast called the "Italian Wine Podcast" are now available. These multimedia guides to Italian wine are an excellent way for anyone interested in wine to discover more about it in an engaging way.
  • Calabria lies at the “toe” of the Italian peninsula. A mountainous region, it is bordered by Basilicata to the north and by the Ionian and Tyrrhenian Seas. Ninety percent of Calabria’s wine production is red and most of it is made from the Gaglioppo grape. This variety was once believed to be of Greek origin but recent research seems to point to it coming from another part of Italy.
  • Some of Southern Italy’s most interesting white wines come from the Campania region. One of my favorite whites is Fiano di Avellino, a DOCG wine made from the Fiano grape. In Naples it is a top choice to go with many local dishes, especially seafood.
