Today’s post is about Italian indigenous grapes that start with the letter “B”. I wrote many of them over 10 years ago and it’s been fun to read through what I wrote. While much remains the same, some things have changed, and some people I mention are no longer with us. 10 years is a long and a short time. I enjoyed repurposing these posts and I hope there is some pleasure in reading them for others as well.
