The Italian abroad wine blog is Andrea's wine blog and diary. Andrea is the founder of and has been living abroad for almost 20 years and this blog is a collection of thoughts mainly about Italian wine and the wine industry. Andrea comes from an Italian wine making family and got acquainted with wine at a very early age, but he does not just love wine, he is also very passionate about food and travelling and often his posts includes a bit of everything.

Hoping to help the understanding of Italian wines, we have designed a series of wine maps, currently it includes DOC and DOCG wine, where you can discover the provenance of your favourite Italian wines.

And if you want to learn more about Italian wines and wine in general, watch Andrea on our Youtube channel tasting our wines and answering questions about Italian wines and grapes, from the Italian wine classification to what is an orange wine.
