Varietal: Trebbiano

Trebbiano grapes have been used for wine production for at least a thousand years in their native home of Italy. It is known that they were introduced to France in the fourteenth century, where they became wildly popular all throughout the country in medieval times. Today, cultivation of Trebbiano grapes is smaller, and they are primarily used for making fortified wines and as a blending grape due to their high acidity and aromatic qualities. However, in Tuscany and elsewhere in the world, wineries are making extremely high quality single variety white wines with the Trebbiano grape, and making the most of its delightful acidity and excellent citrus fruit flavors Trebbiano is also prized by wine makers due to the fact that it is very good at expressing the terroir it is grown in, often resulting in surprising and complex wines.

Region: Umbria

Despite being one of Italy's smallest wine regions, the central Italian region of Umbria is a vitally important one, and home to many of the country's finest and most historic wines and wineries. The reputation of Umbrian wines may have suffered in the 1970s, along with the produce of much of the rest of the country, but the 1980s and 1990s saw significant efforts made by vintners when it came to improving their produce and overall image. By consulting international oenologists, the wineries of Umbria were able to update their traditional techniques, and produce considerably finer wines from their Sangiovese grapes, as well as from imported varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. Indeed, the barrel fermented white wines of Umbria, now made with a blend of Chardonnay and Grechetto varietal grapes, has gone on to be something of a flagship product for the region, and is regarded as one of the best and most characterful white wines in Italy.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
