In 1716, Cosimo III Medici said that the best ambassadors of Florence throughout Europe were Chianti wines, and he is still right today. Living in Italy is like living in a candy store for wine lovers! Every region of Italy produces wine. The best way to sample regional wines is to sit down at a local bar and have wine by the glass. For young or more important wines, try the differences between an enoteca and a vinaio (local wine bars). Both are fabulous learning and tasting experiences. In Florence there are plenty of styles: some are in the old traditional types of standing up at the bar (vinaini or fiaschetterie), others have even turned into dining establishments where you can sit down and actually order (cantina o cantinetta). We will explore them all together…SALUTE !!
