Italy

Wine has always played an integral part in the daily life in Italy. In fact, until as recently as the late 80s, it was inconceivable to serve a meal without it. "To consider the history of wine in Italy is to consider the history of Italy itself…wine and Italian Civilization are virtually synonymous." Italy boasts more land under vine than any other country except Spain. However, unlike Spain or France, grapes are grown virtually in every region--from the cool, alpine hillsides in the North, South to the island of Sicily. Roman legions spread viticulture not just throughout Italy, but across the whole of Western Europe, seeding the world's great winemaking traditions.
