A resource on Italian wine regions includes maps, histories, and products of Latium, Veneto, Piedmont, Tuscany, Umbria, Campania, Apulia, Sardinia, Sicily, and many others.

Some of the preceding information comes from Life in Ancient Rome, written by F. R. Cowell and published in1976 by The Berkley Publishing Group (New York).
