Italy

Wine Italy ItalyItaly is home to some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world. Etruscan and Greek settlers produced wine in the country long before the Romans started developing their own vineyards in the 2nd century BC. Italy is today one of the world's foremost producers and the second largest wine producer after France with more than 1 million vineyards under cultivation. Wine and Italy are almost synonymous. Italians lead the world in wine consumption by volume with 70 litres per capita consumption. Grapes are grown in almost every region of the country, including such well-known regions as the Chianti, etc.
