On the Wine Trail in Italy

So what's going on with Texas? Just a big state or is it the future of the nation's winebloggers?

Check out Alfonso Cevola's site On the Wine Trail in Italy. Alfonso splits his time between the US and Italy, working in the wine business and writing about his experiences. I'm particularly interested in his exploration of the islands. Lord knows I'll do anything to get my hands on those rare bottles of Sardinian wine that occasionally grace our shelves here.

Also included are family stories, insights on Italian food and language, and much more.

"Ever had a drink of watermelon wine?" he asked
He told me all about it, though I didn't answer back
"Ain't but three things in this world that's worth a solitary dime,
But old dogs and children and watermelon wine."Tom T. Hall
