Coastal White and Red Wines, Food & Travel with #Italian FWT


Italy is known as a country of “navigatori and marinai” or explorers and sailors. That’s because so much of Italy is coastline. This led to the choice for this January’s topic for writers in the Italian food, wine and travel group (#ItalianFWT). We are featuring coastal wines, foods and travel this month. Another reason for the choice was the idea of summer in the dead of winter although thus far we can’t complain too much about the temperatures, certainly not here on the East Coast. That makes these wines and foods even more interesting. As we become a more temperate part of the world, there is room to drink and eat all sorts of foods, any time of the year.
