Indie Wineries: Discovering Artisanal Wines Around the World

Indie Wineries: Discovering Artisanal Wines Around the World | wine | Scoop.it

Some call them garagistes, boutique producers, even rebels bucking the system. These are international winemakers crafting handmade wines on very small scale — sometimes just hundreds of cases, to just under 4500 cases, versus the millions of cases pumped out by the big industrial wineries of the world. They’re producing beautiful, lovely, interesting bottles. Most of these wines would never even make it out of the home country, let alone the local region. They’re the wines you might discover on travels in Italy or France, wines the locals drink. Otherwise, you’d never know they existed.

Until now. Indie Wineries is an up an coming wine importer, bringing unique, artisanal wines to the United States market. You know how you go to a party or event and your wine loving friend pulls you aside and says, hey I’ve got this special bottle stashed away I want you to try? It’s always fantastic and better than what everyone else is drinking. Think of Indie Wineries as that friend.[...]

 

The 2010 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi “le Oche” is pretty amazing, rich and luscious (and easier on the wallet at $22).

Map of Italian Wine Regions

Map of Italian Wine Regions | wine | Scoop.it

Italian wine is one of the most difficult regions to get to know. Why? Well for one, the Italians use an esoteric wine labeling system like the French. But that’s not even the the biggest problem. The hardest part is learning all the different grape varieties.
At the moment, there are about 350 official Italian wine varieties. There have been rumors that over 2000 different Italian grapes exist, but this might be a bit of an exaggeration– something Italians do well.
See an easy-to-understand map of Italian wine regions and major wine varieties. Learn about the 20 Italian wine regions and which ones to try first when delving into Italian wines.
