The Italian Abroad Wine Blog

The Italian abroad wine blog is my, Andrea, wine blog and diary. I founded Italyabroad.com in 2003 and have been living abroad for almost 20 years and this blog is a collection of my thoughts mainly about Italian wine and wine in general. I come from an Italian wine making family and got acquainted with wine at a very early age, but I don't just love Italian wine, I love every good wine and drink plenty of it, I am very passionate about good food and travelling, and often my posts include a bit of everything.

To help you understand Italian wines, we have designed a series of wine maps, starting with a DOC and a DOCG wine map, where you can discover the provenance of your favourite Italian wines and I wrote this post that explains the Italian wine classification.

We also have a Youtube channel where you can watch me tasting wine and answering your questions about Italian wines and grapes, from the meaning of DOC to what is an orange wine.

It is like saying that a wine is made with Bordeaux's grapes, but is 10 times cheaper, does this mean anything to a wine drinker or even an expert? No, really
