Italy is one of those destinations most people dream of visiting. Like Britain's London or France's Paris, all wanderlust-filled roads eventually lead you to Rome. 

But from its fine Renaissance Heritage draw-cards to its sublime Amalfi Coast beaches, there is just so much to check off the Italy bucket list.

The above video sees Tri Phan Quoc from World Nomads travel to Italy where he meets with a local wine producer and explores the magical vineyards and enjoy a wine-tasting journey.

A young graduate and up-and-coming chef, this trip to Italy offers Phan a glimpse into the gastronomic delights that he is likely to experience and encounter in his future.

There is also no doubt, Italy has left a powerful mark on Western culture and cuisine – harkening back to its Roman empire days - from its famous art, culture, food, wine, lifestyle, theatre, music, design and of course style.

The beauty of Italy, however, according to a local wine producer is in how different one region is compared to another. From Sardinia to Siciliy, Venice to Florence, it is wonderful going around the different regions having dramatically different experiences. That being said, to truly enjoy, understand and immerse oneself in the finer details of a particular region, it is best to spend an extended period of time in one region at a time.
