Winery Aldo Rainoldi

Region: Lombardy

Lombardy, in north west Italy, has been home to many of the country's finest white wines for centuries, and steadily built up a reputation for excellence as a result of the exceedingly high quality, dry and crisp white wines which are produced there. The primary grape varietal associated with Lombardy is the wonderful Trebbiano di Laguna, a noble subspecies of the Trebbiano grape, which, as the name suggests, grows extremely well on the shores of the beautiful and much visited Lake Garda. However, recent years have seen plenty of experimentation when it comes to grape varietals, and many wineries in the Lombardy region now grow all manner of French Bordeaux grapes, including Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which are used to make superb red wines.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
