Wine touring has become Italy’s third greatest attraction, after beaches and art. Each year over 3 million tourists travel through the vineyards to sample the wines and meet the producers. Italy’s annual “Cantine Aperte” or open cellars brings 750,000 visitors in a single day. Experiencing the Italian food and wine specialties of the region is the perfect way to start a journey to get to know Italy, from its land to its people and history. One of the joys of travelling in Italy is the immense diversity of culture that one encounters from region to region.
