An Italian Affair

Posted by Morgan Dunn on

An Italian Affair By Morgan Dunn | Sommelier, Coda ‘Oho! A sommelier, eh? What’s your favorite wine?’ I’ve had my answer ready for years. French? Love it when I can afford it. German? Sign me up. South African, Spanish or Portugese? Yes, yes, yes. But it’s Italy that holds my vinous soul. I adore Italian wine. Years working in an Italian restaurant and a disproportionate number of Italian mates have only pushed the obsession along (Italian friends are like that; you can never have just the five).
