Editorial Reviews

Episode One: Tuscany is one of the most important and distinguished wine regions in Italy. Among the region's legendary wines are Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile de Montepulciano, and the ever-present Chianti Classico.

Episode Two: Marches stretches from Tuscany to Umbria to the Adriatic coast. Its wines are less well known than those of its more famous neighbors. The chief grape varieties of the region include Sangiovese and Trebbiano.

Episode Three: Lazio is in the heart of Italy. The bulk of the region's wine production is white and is centered in the Castelli Romani, the hill outside of Rome.

Episode Four: Puglia comprises the southernmost region on the "heel" of the Italian boot. The region produces over 350 million gallons of wine and ranks only behind Sicily as Italy's largest producer.

Episode Five: The production of wine in Sicily dates back to the eighth century BC. Today, Sicily has over half a million acres of land devoted to wine grapes and produces over 400 million gallons of wine annually.

Episode Six: Historically, linguistically, and culturally the island of Sardinia seems detached from the mainstream of Italian culture. Wine varieties, not surprisingly, are unique to the island and appear to be primarily of Spanish origin.

Apprx: 2 hrs, color.

I might like this video better if the actual video part was there - seriously, I'm listening to the lady talk but the video keeps fluctuating between fuzzy black and white and no video signal at all. The production values seem pretty low when the rare moments of imagery do pop up - I wonder if way back wherever it originated from someone just dubbed it from tape to tape (it seems like it started as an old VHS) and maybe it was partly magnetized by accident?

Other than that the video does seem to dwell a lot on festivals and side-stories that, while, nice, seem to keep it off topic for a bit too long. I think some maps and lists to lead-in and/or summarize would've helped me, but maybe that's just my personal learning style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Viva L'Italia Viva Vino! December 3, 2007
I've been searching across the globe for DVD's on wine and winemaking, and thanks to Amazon this briliant work of art has hit the ticket. Fair enough the technology used to produce both DVD,s dosen't do its content justice but the insight, history, and general information about Italian wines and its regions is a must for any wine enthusist. As an amateur wine maker (with an Italian background), the scenes of vingerons unloading their crop straight into the crusher, and seeing the wine pouring into demijohns made me feel like grabbing my passport, jump on a plane and giving them a hand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Come on! It is only $9! May 11, 2007
Sure, it is a series of TV episodes linked together to form a full length DVD, but Come on! It is only $9! There is a lot of information, pretty scenery, and stops at various wine regions. I know the sound quality is kinda poor, but Come on! It is only $9! COME ON!
