Celebrating Italian Wines Here and Hopefully Soon in the BC Market

 mywinepal  October 28, 2019

Italian wine always excites me.  I think it is the acidity in the wines and the in general red fruit flavours.  There is also a wide variety of wines from sparkling Prosecco and Franciacorta wines, and rosé/white/red wines made from indigenous grapes that smell and taste different from the other vitis vinifera that is now so common around the world. …
