The region of Campania is one of Italy’s most glorious wine territories, yet the fame of these wines is generally not as well documented as examples from several other wine regions throughout the country.
This is a shame, as Campania is certainly an important wine region, one where historical varieties, such as Greco, Fiano and Aglianico take center stage, while other varieties from the widely planted Falanghina to the lesser-known Pallagrello Bianco and Nero, Piedirosso and Biancolella are also an important part of this region's current wine story.
In this webinar, we will examine the history of this region’s wines, and discuss how today’s producers have changed Campania from a quiet, reserved wine region into a vibrant, critically important one, making today’s Campania home to some of the country’s most distinctive reds and whites.
