The Italian Abroad Wine Blog

The Italian abroad wine blog is my 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 food, but also wine and food 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 any good wine and enjoy plenty of it, as well as 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 Italian wine regions maps featuring DOC and DOCG wines, where you can discover the origin and the grapes making your favourite Italian wine. I also wrote a post on the Italian wine appellation system explaining and demystifying the Italian wine classification and what it really means for Italian wine lover and wine drinkers in general.

Or you can check our Youtube channel where you can watch me tasting some of our wines and answer your questions about Italian wines and grapes, from the real meaning of DOC to what is an orange wine.

Hope you enjoy reading my posts and watching my videos

Waitrose is probably coming out now because they don’t have the same power as the other big supermarkets and are being pushed into a corner, being forced to sell the same wines Tesco and Asda sells matching their prices, squashing their margins even more

Tesco Pinot Grigio Lenoti from £7.99 to £3.99

November 21, 2009    Tags: View Comments (0)

Was this a bargain? Certainly no. I had never seen this wine before so I am not too sure where they had it for that price, but even if Tesco had the wine at £7.99 for 28 days as prescribed by law and then reduced the price, it was still ripping its customers off because the wine is not even worth £3.99.
