Italy is known for all types of wine - red, white, sparkling, and even Marsala (most used for cooking). There are about 20 wine regions throughout the country and this month we are showcasing four of our favourites: Piedmont, Veneto, Tuscany, and Marche.

Piedmont, located in the northwest region, has a complex climate influenced by the chilly mountains in the Alps and the warm Mediterranean. This creates ideal conditions for the Nebbiolo grape used to produce both Barolo and Barbareseco red wines.

Veneto, located in the northeast region, is most famous for its Pinot Grigio, Prosecco, Valpolicella and Amarone.

Tuscany, centrally located, stretching across rolling countryside, is most famous for its Sangiovese-based wines.

Marche (pronounced mar-Kay), on the Eastern cost in central Italy, is home to the black grape Montepulciano and the refreshing Verdicchio white wines.
