Italian Wine Culture in a Single Paragraph

Food and Wine at the Golf Course

I love the Italian approach to drinking and eating; it’s what made me fall in love with wine.  Right now I am studying for my Level II Somelier Exam and I am going back and forth between books.  In The Wine Bible Karen McNeil quoted one of her Italian friends explaining the Italian affinity between food and wine:

“If someone drinks a little too much wine, the Italians do not say he has drunk too much.  Instead they say he has not eaten enough food yet.”

I Love This!

I think this sums my attitude towards wine and food.
