I spent many years learning to enjoy wine while stationed in Northern Italy as a young army officer. In this part of the world, there is a completely different attitude on the subject of wine that we find here in the United States. For some reason, we Americans feel the need to shroud the entire process in an aura of mystery and hype. Many times guests have come to our tasting room on pins and needles intimidated that they will do or say the wrong thing. In Italy, there is a much more casual air about wine. Like anywhere, there is a wide range of wine styles and wine drinkers. Each of these wine styles is as legitimate as the next. Here at Crane Creek, we share that belief. First and foremost wine is best enjoyed with food, friends, and family — preferably all at the same time!
