For the last two years, Italy’s “Slow Wine tour” has come to Texas. When I first moved to the state in 2008, that would have been nearly unthinkable. At the time, Texas and its three major wine destinations — Houston, Dallas, and Austin — were part of an “emerging” as opposed to “established” market for fine wine. As one prominent Texas-based wine...

92% of Made in Italy high-quality products are produced in small villages, counting no more than 5.000 inhabitants. This is what emerged from a joint study by Coldiretti, the greatest collective body representing Italian farmers, and Symbola Foundation, one of the most active institutions in promoting Made in Italy, titled “Small villages and speci...

Sauternes, Tokay, Vin Santo. The great dessert wines of the world all offer inimitable charms. While I’ve had occasion to enjoy many in their place of creation, I’ve seldom tasted one that sung so firmly and sweetly of its homeland as Ben Ryé by Donnafugata.

The discovery of 6,000-year-old wine traces in a Sicilian cave captured public attention, but for experts the find was even more exciting. Professor Davide Tanasi, who led the team that analyzed the wine, explains why it changes our understanding of ancient Sicilian culture. Monte Kronio rises 1,300 feet above the geothermally active landscape of s...

I'm a big fan of northern Italy, especially the Alpine region. Although I'm a big fan of many regions of Italy (who isn't?), I fell in love with the Alpine regions when I traveled to the Valle d'Aosta for my honeymoon.

Before the group of 25 Italian farmers arrived at Stanislaus State on Feb. 5, they were tourists, making overnight stays in Las Vegas and San Francisco, and the hats and new t-shirts the Italians wore spoke to how much fun they were having. But the moment the farmers reached the University’s sustainable garden, where they were greeted by about 20 S...
