The Foods and Wines of Italy
Eat drink and by merry in Italy - food, cuisine, gastronomy and wine

You can scarcely talk about Italy without at least touching on the subject of its foods and wines - and most probably without finding yourselves in an animated discussion about the Italian cooking, dining and drinking experiences you have had - or are about to have.

Italian foods and wines run from the rustic to the sublime and so the subject is one that must cover if we are to claim comprehensiveness.

If your plans include travel to Italy...take some time to read about Italian food and wine - the better to enjoy them while you are traveling in Tuscany, Umbria, Sicily or any other region of Italy.

We will add more and more information as we develop this website, but here is a meager start:
