Grape Harvest Time Grapes are grown in every region of Italy and have been for millennia. Although Tuscany, and especially Chianti, is probably the best known wine growing region internationally, in fact the Veneto region produces the most wine in Italy, followed closely by Puglia, Sicily and Emilia Romagna. Excellent varieties also originate in Piedmont, Alto Adige and Campagnia. Even if you can't visit individual vineyards or some of the more rural areas of the country, many small towns and villages host grape festivals (Sagra dell'uva or Festa dell'uva) throughout the months of September and October so you can experience the nationwide celebrations and indulge in some of the best wines in the world.Read more about these festivals in Frommers. Visit Festa Gioia to see many wine themed ceramics, bottles and wine accessories!!

Limoncello for the Holidays? Limoncello liquor is made from the peels of the lemons combined with alcohol for thirty days. Limoncello is served as a digestive after dinner, or alongside your coffee drink any time of the day. Served in ice cold glasses from a beautiful limoncello bottle. Join us to make limoncello on October 14th at 1 pm. Class taught by Valentina Cirasola $55 per person.
