Gualdo al Re is truly a biological Tuscan winery. Their Rennero is probably the best merlot in Italy. With lodging availabilities in a great area, this winery is my preference.

What’s a glass of Prosecco if it is not served with the perfect pairing of Baccalà Mantecato? Venetians have known it all along!
—Monica Cesarato from Cook in Venice
This Pinot Bianco from Poderi dal Nespoli is one of the best examples of great wine coming out of Emilia-Romagna. It’s would easily score 90+ points from any of the major wine critiques and has a great price point, around $14 dollars. It has great minerality, excellent fruit notes on nose and a long finish. I have been drinking it all year!
—Andrew Stone from Navigate Italy
The wine is all about friendship for me. Gewurztraminer is a wine
introduced to me by my dear Italian friends. Since we drank it in the
Dolomites a few years ago, every time I drink it, I am also thinking
about them. Cheers!

Sparkling Prosecco paired with cicchetti, a favorite food traditional of Venice- the perfect way to sample some of the best of Venice!

A gem of Tuscany…Chianti Classico from a fabulous winery in Greve…LOVE this wine!
—Raleigh Hussung from Love from Italia
A guide book suggested not to leave Orvieto without a bottle of Orvieto Classico. This became one well-traveled bottle – from Orvieto to Perugia to Firenze to Lucca, and finally Vernazza. I shared it with a friend from a roof top!
—Jennifer Leslie from Cartoline Dall’Italia
I love Cecchi Winery’s vineyards and was happy to be a part of the new release lunch for their La Mora Merlot. They have beautiful estates throughout Tuscany and Umbria that have spectacular views and amazing wine. Most importantly, the people who work there are passionate and friendly

Concierge tip: Caffe Baglioni overlooks a little canal which runs alongside the Luna Hotel Baglioni in Venice, the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine alfresco. See also the feature image at the top of this post.
