The Ideal Glass

A Tulip Shaped glass is the best choice for a dry white wine.

It guides the wine to the center of your mouth, avoiding the sides, where acidity is less pleasant.

A smaller bowl also helps to serve smaller quantities, and keep the wine cold.

Remember to hold the glass by the stem!

Campania

Campania is one of the oldest wine regions in Italy. The capital is Napoli.

The grapes in Campania were introduced by the Greeks and cultivated by the Romans.

The name "Campania" derives from "Campania Felix" ("Happy Land").

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
