DoctorWine’s Ultimate Guide to Italian Wine California Tour: 2018 Edition

Seated Italian Edu-Tastings | Walk-Around Italian Luxury Wine Bazaar

Daniele Cernilli is one of Italy’s most renowned wine and food writers.  I have huge respect for his tasting ability, verbiage and insights.  If you wish to learn more about Italian wine, I believe it's imperative that it comes from someone whose life and whose passion have been in pursuit of that subject. With Daniele, you get a lifetime of insight across the breadth of the Italian peninsula.
