Autumn in the heel of Italy

Italy's south still has the capacity to surprise, excite and charm even the most widely travelled and experienced wine buyer.

Last autumn I accompanied Sebastian Payne MW, Society buyer for Italy, on a whistle-stop tour of the southern wine regions of the country. The purpose of the trip was mainly to see existing suppliers from Campania, Puglia, Basilicata and Calabria, but also to prospect for new wines.
