Via Grande Passione
David Swaddle's insight:

Milan may be a long way from Sydney, but I think that a few of these bars could be close to my heart.

Something for the weekend - Indie

Something for the weekend - Indie | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

The Independent's wine picks of the weeks include one that I really enjoy.

 

Gavi is often overlooked in the UK market. It's lightly aromatic with a crisp acidity that makes it very food friendly.

 

I've tried this Tesco one before and it was actually quite good. At under £6 per bottle it's a bargain.

Italy produces 22% of global wine market - decanter.com

Italy produces 22% of global wine market - decanter.com | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

The Yanks buy the most expensive, the Germans guzzle gallons of it and the Brits enjoy it - in moderation. 

 

After a record-breaking export year, Italy now has nearly a quarter of the global wine market, according to the latest statistics as reported in Decanter.

Drew Barrymore Launches Wine - NY Post

Drew Barrymore Launches Wine - NY Post | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

Drew Barrymore has joined the slew of actors and musicians launching their own wines.

 

In this case she doesn't own the vineyard, make the wine or grow the grapes herself. She just licenses her name to go on the bottle and provides a lot of PR potential.

 

It might not be all bad though. It was awarded a gold medal at Le Challenge International du Vin, France’s largest international wine competition. So maybe this is more than a bland alcohol delivery device?

 

Still, it seems a little odd to me to have a recovering alcoholic's name plastered on the bottle. Did they really think this one through??

Disney's Wine Bar

Disney's Wine Bar | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

A new wine bar will open in May at the Italy pavilion inside Disney's Epcot Center.

 

Featuring more than 200 Italian wines, this should be a pleasant place to escape the hoards of screaming kids and over-excited over-eaters.

 

Does this mean that America is getting slightly less paranoid about booze?
