There is no question that wine is synonymous with Italy. Making wine in Italy is like breathing — it is sewn into the fabric of Italian life. There are 900,000 registered vineyards scattered throughout Italy. Italy is the number one wine-producing country in the world and Italians consume an average of 14.5 gallons of wine per person, per year, making them third in the world for consumption.
