Italian Editor Monica Larner reviews Italian wines for Wine Enthusiast Magazine and has lived in Italy on-and-off since age 11. Currently based in Rome, steps away from the Colosseum, Monica visits every corner of Italy in her red Mini Cooper to report on the wine, food and travel highlights of her adopted home. Her books include In Love in Italy (Rizzoli) and Living, Studying and Working in Italy (Henry Holt), and she is now writing a guide to traveling in Italy in the slow lane.” Link: Wine Enthusiast Mag;
According to Larner, “Appreciation of food and wine (throughout Italy) is taught in schools and practiced at home. Italy?s economy relies heavily on food and wine and its gastronomic exports enjoy the same recognition as luxury, fashion and design goods. In a sense, the whole country celebrates a nationwide sagra to its agricultural products that evokes veneration and respect.” Monica Larner is a sommelier with the Italian Association of Somme
