Thanks to the experience and expertise developed in 15 years of activity in the region, the Sommelier of AIS Calabria intend to create with this portal a link between the Calabrian winemakers and the regional, national and international market, in order to highlight the excellence of quality wines and wine identity of Calabria. This is the main objective of Calabria Wine Tour, starting from companies whose wines were tasted in arranged sessions for the Vitae 2015, the Italian Sommelier Association Guide.
