    Most wine lovers have already savored a glass of Argentinean Malbec or Chilean Carménère, but the breadth of the South American wine industry does not stop with these two signature grapes, nor is it contained to the usual suspects of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Chile & Argentina are the regions producing the most wine coming out of the continent. The wines from this area are good value with a distinctive taste. They create new world wines with old world character.

    Marramiero Wines from Abruzzo, Italy »

    Rest and tranquility contribute to building the character of a fine wine. Each Marramiero wine follows its own path. Aging is dictated by nature, whether it takes place in steel or wood. For more than a century, the Marramiero family dedicated itself to the cultivation of indigenous vines such as Montepulciano and Trebbiano as well as other international varietals. Today, we continue to do this with the passion and dedication that has been handed down over generations. This tradition has been the lifeblood of the land that has always yielded its finest, and uniquely Abruzzese, fruit. Meet winery Director, Antonio Chiavaroli.

    In Trentino where nature meets tradition the hands of our wine grape growers have cared for, protected and moulded the vineyards of our Mezzacorona wines since 1904. These wines are the result of the great care which is paid not only to the specific characteristics of the wine grapes but also to the variety and expression of our land and its alpine environment. They are fragrant and elegant wines, authentic and virtuous just like the men who have produced them, they are as special as the land which bears them.

    Wines from Spain vs. Argentina »

    The Spanish settlers introduced the vines in Argentina during the Spanish colonization of the Americas. In the course of five centuries, that Argentina has developed an extraordinary wine industry. A country with such an extensive wine tradition as Spain has to have many different wine types to satisfy everyone's needs and likings. Red wines, white wines and rosé wines are produced in all of the wine making areas of Spain, which are many. Join us to compare the differences between the New World and Old World wines from each country. Curtis Eaton, presenter
