Wine Wednesday ~ Wines of Italy

October 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


by Marty Cook

Our next Wine Wednesday focuses on the Wines of Italy this coming week on 10.13.2021 at 7:00 pm Eastern/New York Time.

From a wine perspective, Italy has a fascinating story. Twenty-five percent of the world’s recognized wine-producing grape varieties are indigenous to Italy. This is a direct tribute to the Romans, who loved wine, and to the Catholic Church, whose monks were constantly cultivating new varieties of wine grapes as an extension of their passion for making sacramental wine. Unlike the French, whose focus was on developing fewer grape varieties and only those of greater quality, the Romans and subsequently the Italians focused on the quantity of different grape varieties as well as the quantity of wines produced. For that reason, there is no shortage of different Italian wines from which to choose.

For this week’s Wine Wednesday on 10.13.2021 at 7:00 pm Eastern Time, consider the many wines of Italy’s 20 Regions (comprised of 110 provinces) and choose the wine that you would enjoy featuring during our weekly Zoom broadcast. Some of what you might ponder could be a blend or single varietals ranging from Arneis, Vermentino, Primitivo (known as Zinfandel in the United States), Verdicchio, Sangiovese, Nero d’Avola, Nebbiolo, or another of Italy’s hundreds of indigenous wine grapes. And, of course, recent decades have seen regions such as Tuscany produce some outstanding blends and varietals from French grape varieties. So, there is no shortage of material from which to choose.

So, please join us for Wine Wednesday on 10.13.2021 at 7:00 pm Eastern Time. And, as a reminder, please send photos of the front and back labels from the bottle you select to WineCat@pa.net by 11 PM Tuesday evening for inclusion in our weekly PowerPoint of featured wines. We look forward to seeing you on the Zoom link shown below!
