Our focus this month, as we begin 2019, is wines of character produced under the protocols of Biodynamic farming.

September 2018 Cellar Club Southern Italy Wines The wines of Southern Italy are waiting to be rediscovered. The Italian wine region that stretches south of Rome through the toe and heel of Italy's famous boot has produced excellent wines since the Greeks crossed the sea and planted vines there some 3,000 years ago. Yet each season brings new fine wines to try from the Southern Italian regions of Campania, Basilicata, Puglia and the islands of Sicily and Sardinia.
