Wine and wineyards of Liguria


Liguria doesn’t produce as much wine as other Italian regions, due to its position, between  mountain chains of Appennini and Alpi, and the sea. And yet, it benefits from a mild weather on the hills and in the hinterland, which facilitates a lot the grape growing. It is thanks to the weather that the region can offer a wine production that, though not plentiful, is surely of good quality. Moreover, the sea gives a particular touch to wines, and has always been an ideal channel for wine export too.
