HPS in Italy

Italy is the world’s largest wine producing country. All twenty of the country’s regions are involved. Quality ranges from some of the world’s greatest wines (Barolo, Barbaresco, Chianti and Brunello being among the best and best-known) to indescribably putrid swill that poisons fruit flies by the billion.

The American market is blessed with dozens of importers specializing in Italian wine and many of the finest examples are imported. Hand Picked Selections has chosen to work with the wines of Aosta, historically part of “Savoy” or “Savoie” in English and French). We have worked with French Savoie wines for decades and Aosta’s tiny, brilliant production has been a logical and acclaimed expansion of our book.
