Since that day in Venice so many years ago now, I have been an Italian sparkling wine aficionado. Now, I live in Le Marche, Italy where I am constantly discovering new sparkling wines from a large number of grape varieties. Some of these wines are made in the classic Champagne method while others, like Prosecco, are made by the charmat method. This site is a record of my voyage of discovery of all things sparkling in Italy. Follow me on this intoxicating journey.
