Italian white wine’s journey to prominence in the U.S.
Vini bianchi (Italian white wine) has had a journey of several centuries in the U.S. since the mid-1900s. Once, Italy’s most important exports to the States were Chianti and Enrico Caruso. Then came the “War to End All Wars,” then World War II. By 1945, the spigot of Italian wine imports had slowed to a trickle.
