    Mardi gras wines

    An old heritage of the Christian tradition, Lent is characterized by the injunction to eat "lean", i.e. to renounce meats.

    Italian Island Wines

    Italy, the world's largest wine-producing country, has managed to preserve a large proportion of its indigenous grape varieties throughout its diverse vineyards.
