"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

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

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.
