The Italian Abroad Wine Blog,
The Italian abroad wine blog is Andrea's wine blog and diary. Andrea is the founder of Italyabroad.com 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.
I just read that EU and Australia have almost reached a compromise on the Prosecco dispute, Australian producers will, still to be confirmed, be able to keep producing and selling Prosecco, amongst many other European protected food, by adding “Australian” on the label
There is no other country offering the diversity of Italian wines. We could look at some of the numbers of the Italian wine industry from grapes grown to wines made, still it will not offer a real snapshot of the Italian wine offering and yes, Italy has a long way to fully realise its potential and become a wine powerful nation, beyond the quantity, still too much poor quality wine is made and sold, damaging the whole Italian wine brand but if you know where to go, there is no other country like Italy
What next for me, for us, non British, is a big question mark, will I be sent back to Italy or allowed to remain in the UK? The same uncertainty is affecting the wine industry.
