The Italian Food, Wine, Travel Group Uncovers the Pecorino Grape
This month our #ItalianFWT group of writers highlight the white wine grape Pecorino, looking to find examples in the Italian regions where it grows most: Le Marche (it’s native home) and Abruzzo. Pecorino vines exist in Liguria, Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria too. This group virtually visited Le Marche last spring and focused on the Verdicchio grape, another Italian beauty (here is my article).
Because 100% Pecorino wine can be difficult to locate, we opened the topic to other wine discoveries in Le Marche and Abruzzo.
This is an invitation to join us! It’s super easy, here’s how:
