According to historians, the first production of wine dates back to around 7000 BC in China when honey and fruit were fermented into an alcoholic drink. So, who brought wine to the Italian peninsula? In fact, by the time the Greeks arrived and brought viticulture to Southern Italy around 800 BC.  They also noted that due to the climate and terrain, Italy is a land so perfectly suited for grape-growing that they called it The Land of Wine.

From the snow-capped Alps in the north to the sun-drenched slopes of the south, along beautiful lakes and long coastlines, whether in national parks or roadside jungles, city squares or small-town ancient stone walls - the heart of Italy beats with wine.
