Italy Dec 2016

Italy Supplement: Talking Italian

06 Dec 2016 | By Harpers Bespoke

From all my travels round the country I know Italy has got what it takes with its treasure trove of native grapes and glorious diversity of regional styles. Getting the message through is something else, and between the vineyard and the retail shelf or restaurant list much is lost in translation. 


Whatever your message the Harpers Bespoke team can work with you to provide the most eye catching and effective way to communicate it to the readers of Harpers.co.uk.

Harpers Bespoke provides a great platform to talk to and educate your customers using the very latest media tools and content ideas.

  • Spain Supplement: Stirring up a great debate Subscription

    Terroir is a word that crops up frequently throughout this supplement.

  • Italy Supplement: Baffling but never boring Subscription

    For those who really ‘get Italy’, like plenty in the trade, that riotous mix of individual producers, regional styles and native grapes is a big part of what makes Italian wine so special. Italophiles would have it no other way – this is a land to get lost in and never escape from. But in high-tax Britain on the High Street that complexity is a bit of an issue.
