Bordeaux

The Bordeaux region is located close to the Gulf of Gascogne, on the Atlantic Coast. Known for the diversity and superior quality of its vineyards, this south-west region of France has had a particular attachment to wine for many centuries.

The vineyards of Bordeaux profit from an ideal coastal climate, characterized by gentle winters and warm summers. As a gauge of quality, this choice environment puts Bordeaux among the most productive wine-growing regions in the world.

The Bordeaux abounds with a variety of gastronomic specialties, both sweet and savoury. Bordeaux is the birthplace of so many delicacies, from their celebrated cannelés to their Sarmets du Médoc (chocolate-covered orange peel). In Bordeaux, many dishes are served in wine sauce; including steaks, crawfish, veal liver and lamprey.

SICILY

PUGLIA

In the southeast of Italy, the Puglia region stretches over 400 km into the heel of the boot. It’s an area rich in wine tradition and was, at one time, nicknamed “Europe’s wine cellar.”

Taking advantage of the warm Mediterranean climate, the Puglia region has long been recognized for its rather strong wines. Today, more emphasis is placed on making top quality wines. Covering 132,000 hectares, the vineyards produce just a little more red than white.

Puglian cuisine is characterized by its rusticity. The ingredients are simple: wheat for homemade pasta, fresh vegetables, lots of fish and shellfish, and, of course, olive oil. For centuries, the same recipes have been handed down from generation to generation. You absolutely must try the orechiette, the region’s specialty.

MARCHES

In this popular region for tourists, we find beautiful beaches, a landscape of gently rolling hills and plenty of important art cities.

Privileged with particularly favourable soils for growing vines, the Marches region has a wine heritage dating back thousands of years, which explains the depth and variety of styles.

You can taste the robustness of the hinterland in its meat dishes, but also in its pastas, including the traditional vincisgrassi, the mother of all Italian lasagnes.

The soft, fresh flavour of the sea is also extremely present in its fish dishes and bouillabaisse.

SICILY

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean. Entirely mountainous, it benefits from a very fertile volcanic soil, suitable for cultivation, where it always meets the sun.

With a land of agricultural abundance, awareness of wine production in Sicily is well established. Its most famous wine is the Nero d’Avola, produced in the Agrigente region, and the Grillo de Marsala.

Sicilians have a character all their own, but they nonetheless remain Italians. They eat endless amounts of richly dressed pasta with whatever the sea offers them.

They also hold an equally important place for meat cooked in hot sauces: stuffed veal farsumagru, polpettoni (meatloaf), and lots of lamb and rabbit.
