As many of you might know I am half Italian, with family that comes from the province of Trentino in northern Italy. It’s where the seeds for my love for wine were originally planted, and there are plenty of fabulous wines produced there. Though little of it finds it’s way to our shores. That is slowly changing but the truth is there is only so much ground that we can make up.

Consider that the overwhelming majority of table wine produced in Trentino comes from a pair of large, albeit quite good companies and that the production of Trento DOC, the local Metodo Classico Spumante that we rarely see, contributes to pushing the production to nearly 65% white wine.

You’d think we’ve had seen all that Trentino has to offer.
