Food and wine
If you are getting married in Italy, it is likely that one of your reasons for choosing this beautiful country is the exceptional quality and variety of the food and wine.

Also in this section you can read about various Italian wines, be they reds like Chianti, Nero D’Avola and Valpollicella, whites like Falanghina, Soave and Gavi or even sparkling varieties like Prosecco, Pignoletto or Asti. There are delicious varieties of each, some well known overseas, others not, so if you are a fan of wine or just want to find out more, this section is for you.
