Tweets - From the 2014 Symposium for Professional Wine Writers in Napa Valley:

"I’m surprised Alfonso Cevola has not been approached with a book deal yet. His knowledge of Italian wine is encyclopedic. His voice is one-of-a-kind. Whether he’s decoding Italian wine laws or pontificating on “Tuscan Superiority Complex,” Cevola’s writing is infectious." - Jessica Yadegaran, Contra Costa Times, MercuryNews.com

"You are blessed with a gift of astute perception and a wonderfully romantic mind." - John Mariani - Villa Banfi

The first time I read "On the Wine Trail in Italy" I wasn't sure why I liked it. But I kept on reading. And now I look forward to reading whatever Alfonso writes. Unlike the vast majority of bloggers, he has a strong and unique voice; he fills us with his words. So, really, he's a ventriloquist and we are his dummies. - Ron Washam, HMW

"The Consiglieri of Italian Wine "-Tom Wark - Fermentation

"only God could inspire that kind of writing" - Iris Burnett - We're Just Sayin

"Just read a few posts, nice work! Keep it up! Congrats you have done a great job here"- Gary Vaynerchuk 

The day I started blogging I never imagined the good people and the goodness that would come into my life because of that... You are certainly at the top of that list...

Italian Wine Guy aka Alfonso Cevola, another good friend of mine, is hands-down the top Italian wine blogger in the U.S. This guy knows his stuff and his blog is a daily read for me. I love the way that Alfonso bends our genre, always pushing the envelope in ways that surprise and entertain me.
- Jeremy Parzen, Ph.D.

"I am a regular reader of your blog, On the Wine Trail in Italy. Your blog writing and pictures are unique and fantastic.-Rich @wineimbiber.com

"We so appreciate your Web site and the entire "virtual wine community" that is helping to create and nurture wine lovers " -Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg

"I really must say you write one of the most delightful blogs on the net. Whenever I visit I am taken by its grace and beauty. Truly wonderful work." - Ken Payton- Reign of Terroir

On the Wine Trail in Italy is one of the web’s premier wine travel blogs .The blogs serves as a journal of the author’s travels to various vineyards throughout Italy as well as dealings abroad. Cevola’s writing is creative, poetic, thoughtful, and worth reading for anyone with a general interest in the international culture of wine. -Guide to Culinary Schools "50 wine blogs to please your palate"

Now THIS is some funny shizzle , Muzzle me timbers! - Anonymous

Alfonso is the Yoda of wine bloggers. Notice his green profile photo. Coincidence? I don't think so.
Ron Washam aka Hosemaster

I do, on occasion, read Alfonso’s blog “On and On and On and On and On and On the Wine Trail in Italy.” Alfonso must have been Dante in a previous life, and is now being punished. But you never know what he’s going to say or how he’s going to say it, and that makes for compelling prose. I can hardly wait to read his English language version. Ron Washam aka Hosemaster

Beautiful and so thoughtful... as always. -Samantha Dugan

Patty, you are so right: Alfonso is tops in the writing dept. - Thomas Pellechia

Holy smokes, fire and brimstone, you can write A.  Best post I've read anywhere in a month, or more. - Genevelyn Steele Swallows

With wonderful words and photographs, you always manage to remind me how much I love Italy - Tony McClung

I've said it before and I'll say it again--da da da-da da-da daa...welcome ba-ack (bu-ba), your dreams were your ticket out..."- Tracie Branch Parzen

Thank Dionysius that there are people like you in the business. It's not all product and margins and profits.- Marco Romano

Probably the best wine writer on the planet (and he doesn’t charge a cent for it) is Alfonso Cevola - Anthony Danna

Alfonso knows more about Italian wine than almost anyone -- and that's no mean feat, given how difficult Italian wine is. - Jeff Siegel, the Wine Curmudgeon

Beautiful. You are a seer. - Ole Udsen

I was reading through your information on your collection of wines from Italy. My extended family is from Montefiascone, I noticed the bottle you have (LAMPANI G.B. FIGLI) I was with family and visited several years ago in search of the vineyards the Lampani's had. I found that the Lombardo hotel had an empty bottle with the Lampani name in a showcase. The vineyards are now gone. Most of my dad, Gerard Lampani's family has passed, but he and his dad continued the wine making as a hobby. My grandfather has also passed. I am continuing the tradition and hoping to keep the name alive, I am wondering what G.B. Fragile stood for and am also interested in the bottle you have.
