October - Wine of the Month

Tuscany

Tuscany is the most enduringly famous of all Italian wine regions, thanks to the romantic glamor of its endless rolling hills, stunningly beautiful cypress-lined country roads and hilltop villages. The warm Mediterranean climate contributes to the success of wine production in Tuscany and one variety that particularly thrives on these hillside vineyards is Tuscany’s signature red grape, Sangiovese.

The reason why Tuscan wine is so special is excellently described by Italian Wine Expert Giacomo Tachis, 

‘Here there is light, the sun. Radiant sunlight and the right soil are the soul of wine. But the tradition of the countryside and the memory of men are the solid bases of the extraordinary Tuscan wine culture.’

Don't miss picking up a bottle or two this month and transport yourself to fantastic Tuscany!
