As we tour the wine regions of Italy, we’re enjoying not only exquisite wines but indulging in traditional multi-course dinners reflecting each region’s classic dishes which pair beautifully with wine varietal expressions from the same region. While wine may be considered a ‘cocktail’ in the USA, in Italy its sole purpose is complementing food. And OH how we love how it does that!
