A Toast to Italian Geography

Britta Ambauen drew on some vintage inspiration to create this map of Italian wine regions: "I start by drinking lots of Italian wines," she explains, "talking about their virtues with words like Buonisimo! or Mi piace! Looking to my favorite maps of Italy, I start with delicate pencil lines, laying out the shapes of the wine regions. Then, I use colored pens to go over the most significant lines and write in the names of the regions."

Britta saves the best part for last: "I squeeze out little blobs of yellow ochre, alizarin crimson, cobalt, and indigo and mix subtle shades to define each region, reflecting the hue of the wines most commonly produced in each area. This part requires classy jazz to fill the air and—it goes without saying—a glass of vino Italiano positioned far enough from the paper to avoid disaster." Britta's first Italian wine map offers the perfect serving suggestion—it was a gift for her boyfriend, and now hangs over the table where they like to taste wine. Digital print from Britta's original artwork. Printed and framed in Portland, OR.
