sipItaly is your guide to independent Wine and Olive oil tourism in Italy. You have already designed your itinerary, reserved your vacation rental, agriturismo or hotel, made a couple of restaurant reservations, and considered your cultural choices and tours. Now, you need to find a wine tasting that suits your desires.
Do you want to drop into a small cantina or frantoio, taste a few wines (or olive oils) and pick up a case for your remaining days? Or, would you prefer to tour the vineyards and have a tasting with small bites of crostini, salumi and cheese? Or are you dreaming of a 3-course lunch with proper wine pairings? Here you will find all of those options in all of the regions in Italy.
We also source the latest information and Market News about all things related to food, particularly DOP and IGP* products, their protection, progress and challenges.
* We continue to use DOP and IGP rather than PDO and PGI.
