Italy by Region

Phew! TGIF! It has been a looooong week. With moving this week, feeling under the weather and wine studies, not to mention working full-time, this wine lover’s pooped. I’m struggling right now with how to make this post interesting. It’s one of those nights, one of those weeks, so please forgive me.

As previously mentioned, I’m finding memorizing Italy a bit difficult. What I love about it though is that you’ll find vineyards throughout the whole country.


Pictured is Rome, Italy. In Lazio, just outside the Eternal City is Frascati DOC.

Each geographical region has areas under vines:

Northwest Italy

  1. Piemonte
  2. Lombardy
  3. Liguria

Northeast Italy

  1. Trentino-Alto Adige
  2. Friuli-Venezia Giulia
  3. Veneto

Central Italy

  1. Emilia-Romagna
  2. Tuscany
  3. Marche
  4. Umbria
  5. Lazio
  6. Abruzzo
  7. Molise

The South and Islands

  1. Campania
  2. Puglia
  3. Basilicata
  4. Calabria
  5. Sicily
  6. Sardinia

Guess who will be hard at work memorizing these and more this weekend?
