ITALIAN WINE CLUB

AUGUST 2020

BEACH CLOSED… so open these wines instead.

In the middle of this unprecedented summer it seems only right to picture ourselves with toes in the sand, celebrating the scents and familiar flavors of a beautiful seaside beach. The geologically unique boot of Italy is spoiled with so much Mediterranean coastline – 4,700 miles of it in total. And just like in the rest of Italy, every coastal region displays its very own unique character and boasts incredible views that makes it pretty tough to choose between them in a travel guide (if we were only to be so lucky right now).

The dramatic Ligurian coast seems to jump straight out of the Med into rugged mountains, and stretching from the Italian Riviera to the fishing villages of Cinque Terre. On the eastern coast, Le Marche is the jewel of the warm, bountiful and downright captivating Adriatic Sea. The volcanic island of Ischia, Campania, is equally as picturesque as its more famous counterparts just south in Amalfi and in Noto, the far southern tip of Sicily, the views and flavors are far more akin to a tropical paradise. 

As is appropriate to the moment, we’re taking the best type of ‘virtual tour’ of these incredible locations by visiting their most expressive inhabitants; the grapevines that overlook these beach vistas, listen to the waves crash, and taste of the sea.
