Wine/Wine from Certain Region in Italy


Hi Paul,
An Italian organization, to which I am a member, is celebrating its 75th Anniversary. Most of the founding members came from San Marco dei Cavoti in the province of Benevento, Italy. I thought it would be special to present a bottle of wine from San Marco or close to this area to members being honored. Are there any wines that are available in the US from this region? Thank you for your help

Hi Re

I am not sure about wines from San Marcop dei Cavoti...but Benevento has a lot of great producers, and the wines should be available.  There is one caveat:  few Italian wineries are really large, so they don't ever ship much wine to the US.  The secrect is to find and importer or retailer who knows the system and can find something for you. Falanghina is the local grape here, and it makse for some lovely wines,

One place to start looking is at delicious Italy:

And if you are near Manhattan, you can always check with the wine shop at Eataly!

Hope that helps.
