Two weeks ago I had the privilege of visiting the Abruzzo region of Italy, along with a group of US and Canadian journalists. Montepulciano d’Abruzzo has been a favorite for a long time and with that we tasted Trebbiano, Pecorino and Cococciolla among others. The sparkling and Rosé were also very tasty. Our program this week includes interviews with a few Abruzzo winemakers recorded during the grand tasting. I’ve also included a brief conversation with Wine Journalist and fellow traveler Julia Coney, getting her take on the region. You can learn more by visiting
