04 Katie Parla, Rome-based Food and Beverage Expert, Travel Writer and Food Historian – Katie Parla
Residents of Rome enjoy the light, refreshing wines of Lazio during summer months; Lazio is one of Italy’s lesser-known wine regions. The Italian craft beer industry is currently thriving. Katie Parla, Rome food and beverage observer, has witnessed the gaining momentum over the last five years. Many of the beers are brewed like wine and incorporate grape must and elements of the terroir. She’s the only person in Rome doing private beer tastings in any language (English or Italian). Parla recently wrote a piece for Saveur about wines and beers that go well with pizza since pizza is always a crowd-pleaser. Enjoy
