Wine Tasting – Wine Tours in Italy


»» How Wine Is Made – Revealed in Fun, Fact-filled Book

Grapes for drinking, wine from grapes….it seems easy. But do we know what must is? Is it true that certain micro-organisms devour grapes and produce alcohol? Can you produce white wine with red grapes? The answers to these and many other questions are found in “Grapes in the Glass“, a book by Teresa Severini Zaganelli, head of marketing and communications at one of Italy’s foremost wineries.

Grapes in the Glass

The book combines professional know-how and a sense of responsibility to introduce youngsters and adults to enology, setting the foundation for accurate information and the culture of taste.
A fun-filled visit among the vineyards becomes the springboard for talking about the fascinating world of wine in a new and simple way: drops of technical information, poetry, history and expertise to collect in a glass, remembering the words of English poet Edward Young: “friendship is the wine of life!”.

The Author: Teresa Severini Zaganelli is one of the first women in Italy to have become a professional winemaker.
After her university degree from the Agricultural Faculty of the University of Perugia, she specialized at the Institut d’Oenologie de l’Université de Bordeaux; since 1979 she has worked full time in the family business, one of Italy’s foremost wineries. After many years in which she was responsible for the technical vinification processes, acquiring know-how that allowed her to “invent” various wines, she is now head of company marketing and communications.
