Classical Italian Wine

Early inhabitants of North Central Italy, the Etruscans, left remnants and indications of how they were able to make wine. When the Greeks settled in Southern Italy, they too were quick to find ease in producing wine, and even dubbed Italy with the name ‘Entoria’, which means the land of wine. It truly is the land of wine. Italy’s climate and soil combined with the old traditional technique of viticulture has contributed to Italy taking its place as a key natural wine-producing nation. The wines produced are as diverse as the people who inhabit this land, and as different as the colors of a spectrum.

Verona – City of the Vento

In Italy’s North East, Verona is one of those fantastic Italian cities full of the joys of past and the present. Roman artifacts abound. Even walking down the street you can stop in your tracks as you pass across the top of a Roman road. Breakfast in my hotel – a wonderful mix of cosy apartments and luxury rooms – was a great way to start the day. The dining room was circular, the centerpiece an amazing thousand year old mosaic floor under glass. And the steaming silver jugs of thick hot chocolate Italian-style, fresh fragrant, buttery brioche-type rolls and apricot nectar on the menu had me in raptures.
