Italian wines from Liguria on show in La Spezia

Liguria da bere” or “Drinking Liguria” is an fair of traditional products and wine from Liguria that will take place in La Spezia, south of the Cinque Terre, this weekend.
Liguria is one of the more undervalued regions in Italy, though it offers a rich history in wine and food.

The area dedicated to grape vines in this region is 2,400 hectares, with 774 DOC Italian wines (33 percent of the total).
More than 71,000 hectolitres are produced each year.
The Ligurian wine on show is: Cinque Terre, Vermentino and red and white from the Colli du Luni and Colline di Levanto, Pigato, Rossese and Vermentino from Riviera di Ponente.

Other traditional Italian wines from this area are: Bianchetta, Rossese di Dolceacqua or Ormeasco di Pornassio (I know, the name), and the wines from Val Polcevera.
If you’re in town, try some vermentino or the sweet wine from the Cinque Terre if it can be found.
