PUSHKIN HOUSE WINE CLUB: RUSSIANS IN ITALY – ITALIAN WINE TASTING Devoted to 150th Anniversary of the Birth of M. Gorky

Russians have always had a soft spot for Italy: the Italian character, the way of life, the scenery and nature that are so dramatic and tranquil at the same time, Italian art, and of course wine and food. The love of Italian wine in Russia probably goes back to the second half of the 18th Century when Catherine the Great tried Moscato di Scanzo, brought to her by the famous Italian architect Giacomo Quarengi, who was building St Petersburg at the time. The wine was from his hometown of Bergamo, where it is still traditionally produced today.

At the same time, the world around him was also undergoing momentous changes. This was true in the wine world, too.
