We have a vast selection of Italian wines, from Italian Prosecco to a delicious bottle of Montepulciano D'Abruzzo we have an Italian wine for you. Most our Italian wines can be found in some of the most prestigious restaurants in the UK. Wine has been grown in Italy since the 2nd Century B.C. In fact, the Romans pioneered large-scale production techniques in Italy, learning to use barrels and bottles to store and age wine. Almost 2,000 years later, Italy is still at the forefront of wine production, accounting for a fifth of all wine produced in the world. It even bested France as the leading producer in 2008.
The fifth largest producer of wines in the world, Argentina owes its winemaking roots to the Spanish who first brought wine grapes here in 1557. Argentine wine is as big and as bold as their national dance, the Tango. Their wonderful flavor and spice will seduce you into a lifelong love affair with wines from Argentina.
Like many other countries in Europe, the United Kingdom can thank the Romans for the presence of wine grapes and the fledgling wine industry that sprang up as a result. And though a long period has passed between the monks of Warden Abbey and state-of-the-art winemakers crafting UK wines today, wine growing has never really become the boom industry that it could have become, even though the United Kingdom is a major consumer of wines.
