Wine! Wine!! Wine!!! Where there is Italian food, there MUST be Italian wine!
In Italy, there are 20 regions, and every region produce their own wines. However, Italian wine is dominated by 3 major regions; Veneto, Toscana and Piemonte. These 3 regions dominate almost half of the wines produced in Italy.
Casa Roma Wine Tasting on 17th June focused on Veneto!
Veneto is most famous for having Venezia, the City of water, as the capital city of the region. Also, Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet was set in Verona, another popular city in Veneto.
