Whether you’re learning about wine or a fan of Italian wines, this map is an essential reference.
When released, this was the first modern, comprehensive and accurate map of Italy’s wine regions. Steve De Long (creator of the wine maps) said, 'It was complicated to produce, as most of it was a translation of written Italian wine laws into maps. Luckily, it was well-received and became an impetus to carry on mapping the wine world.'
Includes: all DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata), DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) and IGP (Indicazione Geografica Protetta) regions; detail maps of Piedmont DOCs, Piedmont DOCGs and Chianti subregions.
No wine producing country - not even the great France - can rival Italy in its vast diversity of wine styles, grape varieties and geography. Wine is so intertwined with the life and land of the Italians that it is popularly considered one giant and great vineyard. Indeed, the ancient Greeks called their Italian colonies Oenotria, the land of wine.
All of the maps are made using the latest mapping technology, current wine laws and regulations of each region, as well as consultation with wine industry professionals.
