For the past several years, I have lived in the Veneto region of Northern Italy where the factories of most of the companies on this list happen to be located.
I have assembled this list of top appliance brands based on the recommendations of local Italian cooks and chefs who use these kitchen appliances personally.
In this article, we will look at 21 of the very best wineries in Montepulciano, highlighting their best wines, breathtaking views, wine production style, and inviting tasting rooms.

If you’re searching for the best wineries in Chianti, this is the only article you will ever need on the topic.
While recently planning a trip to the Chianti Classico wine region of Tuscany, I reached out to my dear Italian friend Vera Sarzano, who lives in the heart of this beautiful part of Italy.
When it comes to aviation, weather conditions play a critical role in determining the safety and feasibility of a flight.
Rain, with its potential to create reduced visibility, slick runways, and gusty winds, raises the question: Can a plane take off in the rain?

The Italian citizenship application process includes challenges such as an Italian language test and in some cases mountains of paperwork, but once your application has been submitted and you have paid your application fee, it usually takes between 6 months and 1 year of processing time before a decision is made regarding your case.
Traditional Italian cuisine is simple and composed of the simplest elements. A cornerstone of most Italian cooking (the kind of cooking that real Italian grandmothers still practice in Italy) is to always use the freshest seasonal ingredients.
The modern American or Western-style diet is so far removed from the Italian-style Mediterranean diet that the two are nearly unrecognizable when compared side by side.
The best news for the diet-weary American or Westerner is that anyone can realize the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet – without making any single food off-limits.
Although not everyone is able to move to a Mediterranean country where the food quality is higher and without fast food spots on every corner, the Mediterranean approach to food and lifestyle can be replicated almost anywhere.
