All great wine is made in the vineyard and that starts with the grapes. France's Rhône Valley produces powerful, spicy red wines made with Syrah and Grenache.

    Fine Wines from Italy »

    Marco is back! Tradizione Imports was founded in 2010 by Marco Irato and Salvino Nasello: two friends both of Sicilian origin who share the same passion for Italian wines. The best way to make sense of Italian red wines is to simply start tasting them. Italy offers the perfect red wine for every occasion—from pizza on Monday, to roast beef with the in-laws on Sunday, and everything between. As always, Marco will be featuring fine wines from different regions of Italy.

    Bargain Wines with 90+ Ratings! »

    For most of us, wine-selection is hardly a science or an art. It's a trouble-shooting process starting with the cheapest bottle and working up the price range to something you truly enjoy. In any case, finding that sweet spot between cheap and delicious takes a lot of time and money. But who's to say you have to spend a lot of cash on a decent bottle of wine? To find a wine rated 90 points or higher that is approachable enough to purchase is tough on its own. We want everyone to have a chance to enjoy some of these highly rated wines at value prices! Mark Strassel, presenter.
