Support the victims of Italy’s 2009 earthquake by drinking Abruzzo wine

According to the New York Times, the April 2009 earthquake in the Abruzzo region of Italy left nearly 28,000 persons homeless.

At Ciao 2, we are proud to pour Montepulciano d’Abruzzo by the Abruzzo winemaker Capestrano: it’s got bright fruit and smooth tannin, our favorite pizza wine and a great pairing for our Tomato and Mozzarella sandwich on grilled panini bread (above).

Abruzzo has been hard hit by homelessness in the earthquake’s aftermath and the many restaurants and wine bars and wine shops that have been damaged in the tragedy. Every time you open a bottle of wine from Abruzzo, you help to support the region, its winemakers, and its people.

Don’t forget Abruzzo!
