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.

For those of you who are new to the site, I'd encourage you to use it to contact fellow bloggers in your state. One of the problems of being from outside California or New York is that it's easy to feel like you're alone in your city, state, or region when it comes to wine writing. Hopefully WITS will help correct that.

He told me all about it, though I didn't answer back

But old dogs and children and watermelon wine."Tom T. Hall
