Varietal: Arneis

The Arneis grape varietal has been one of the key grapes of the famous Piedmont region of Italy for centuries, and is adored by locals due to its highly aromatic nature, and the fact that it produces wines of superb quality. Wines made from Arneis varietal grapes are known for their crispness, their full body and their deliciously aromatic orchard fruit and apricot flavors However, they are somewhat notoriously difficult to grow, as they over-ripen very quickly, losing their acidity and flavors in the sunshine if left on the vine too long. Traditionally, this grape was used for blending, as its strong floral aroma was highly sought after. Nowadays, it is common to see single variety bottles made from the Arneis, and several New World countries have begun experimenting with this tricky and sensitive varietal to great effect.

Region: Piedmont

For hundreds of years, the beautiful alpine region of Piedmont in north-west Italy has been producing excellent quality red wines, and some of the most characterful sparkling white wines to have ever come out of the Old World. The region is dominated by the mighty Alps which form the border between Italy, France and Switzerland, and the Moscato grapes that are grown in the foothills of this mountain range carry much of the Alps' flavors in their fruit, and are fed by crystal clear mountain waters. However, it is the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which are the real stars of this region, and the highly respected wineries which cover much of Piedmont have generations of experience when it comes to processing and aging these grape varietals to produce the superb wines which come out of appellations such as Barolo and Barberesco.

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.
