On Saturday, August 1st, the Italian Food Wine & Travel bloggers will be sharing their thoughts and tasting notes on the pink wines from Italy’s native grapes. With 20 wine-producing regions and hundreds of indigenous varieties to choose from, it’s sure to be a lively discussion. This gang always serves up lively conversation: expect travel adventures, food pairings, family history, and more.
Please join the party and add your story to the mix. You don’t have to be a blogger, just someone who loves wine and enjoys chatting with like-minded folks. We get started at 11 am ET on Twitter, using #ItalianFWT. Just search that hashtag to find the conversation and make sure to add it to your tweets so we’ll see them. Hope to “see “ you there!
Craving a little food for thought on the regions and their wines? Here’s a brief overview of Italian rosato, including the regions and grapes that make them wonderful.
