More information on Calabria
Located in southern Italy, Calabria is a region rich in cultural heritage and natural beauty. Its gentle climate, turquoise waters and wild landscapes, combined with the intense and genuine flavors of its wines and its cuisine, make Calabria a great destination for your next wine tastings.
During your winery visits in Calabria, you will learn how winemaking is deeply rooted in the ancient traditions of its territory, to the point that Calabrian wines were even given as prizes to the winners of the first Olympic games that took place during the Greek empire. In more modern times, Calabrian wines were deemed as blending wines due to their intense color and high alcohol percentage, but in the last few years, thanks to the dedication of many local winemakers, the quality of Calabrian wines has increased substantially. Nowadays, Calabria boasts 10 DOC and 10 IGT wines.
