Vino Travels Top 5 Italian Wine Blogs of 2018

Another year comes to a wrap.  It has been a great year of wine from around the world with of course our love for Italian wines.  Time to say goodbye to 2018 and welcome 2019 with open arms, open minds and an open glass.  As I continue to take you on our journey around Italy I also plan to show some highlights from other wine regions outside of Italy to broaden our horizons.  I'd appreciate if you could take this quick survey so that I can hear from my readers and find out what you'd like to read more about in 2019.

Here are the top 5 Italian wine blogs of 2018.  I hope they were your favorites too!   

#1 50 Harvests with the Sieni Family of the Montefioralle Winery
#2 Aglianico del Vulture from Cantina Il Passo in the Basilicata 
#3 Verdicchio of the Marche with Tenuta di Tavignano
#4 Vermentino of Toscana with Aia Vecchia
#5 Lake Garda Says Hooray for Rose' with Chiaretto

As you've noticed I've also incorporated some non-Italian wines into the blog this year as I've done in previous years.  I think it's important to understand wines from around the world.  Although, some times when I feature non-Italian wines there may be an affiliation with Italy whether they are Italian grapes being grown outside Italy or the producers have an affiliation with Italy.  I hope you've been enjoying them.

#1 Italian Grapes in the Lodi with Harney Lane's Primitivo
#2 A Taste of Orange Wine in Vermont with Iapetus

Thank you all for your support and sharing your passion for Italian wine.  Happy New Year and Buon Anno!  As always I love to hear from my readers so please leave comments or send me an email at any time!  Share with your friends too!
