Italian Wines

Most wine drinkers know that Italy is one of the most important and prolific producers of wine. Italy, in fact, produces the most wine in the world these days (France also tops the list), responsible for roughly one-third of global wine production. Their dominance in viticulture goes back millennia.

The Greeks brought wine production on a large scale first to Sicily and Southern Italy, spreading northwards over the coming centuries. It was the Romans, though, who refined the process, innovating new techniques, and experimenting with different grape combinations. Further variations were perfected in specific regions of the country.

Today, Italians recognize several classifications of wine from dozens of different grape varieties grown in a multitude of regions. The intricate details of all these different kinds of wine can be a daunting task to explore, many people wouldn’t know where to begin!

Allow us here at Goodfella’s of Debary to make it simple. We will be hosting a 5 course wine pairing dinner on Monday, November 7th at 6:30pm. The pre-fixe menu will be paired with exceptional wines for you to enjoy! This is a reservation-only event and space is limited, so reserve your seats today via email at caitlin@goodfellasitalianrestaurant.com.  Seats are $50 per person.

We look forward to seeing you there!
