"Age and glasses of wine should never be counted." - Italian proverb
Carefully curated by Water & Wine's very own sommelier, the Italian Wine Puzzle highlights the country’s key wine-producing regions, main grape varieties, and star appellations. The box also features grape profiles, describing aromas, characteristics, and food pairing tips! Illustrated by hand, this design was first hand-drawn and then attentively reviewed with the help of some of the top sommeliers in the world.
More than a puzzle, you will learn about wine of course, but also about Italian geography as you start playing your way into the world of wine.

The puzzle was a joy in a level 4 lockdown on Waiheke Island, New Zealander. The closet we would be getting to Italy and it’s wine regions for a while! Ordered it for my wine buff daughter who is usually not a puzzle fan. She loved it, as did my husband and I, and we jockeyed for position around the table to complete it. A real winner. Thanks Lesley.
This is my dream puzzle! It combines my love of wine, and my love of puzzles. And even though I know a fair amount about wine, this puzzle taught me so much more. And the geography of Italy “to boot”. I am trying to allot only a certain amount of time each day because I don't want the fun to end. The quality of the pieces is excellent and all the little extras are a nice touch; the poster, the box lid stand, and the inside box covers. Really well done. Thank you.
I Love these Puzzles! I received France & California as gifts, so ITALY was actually my Third! I have been a Travel Consultant for 35+ years, so this “fits” me. Also, being French Canadian from Quebec, Canada=Wine Lover! (although I am sorely tempted by the Scottish Whiskey Puzzle!) The overall Experience is Wonderful=small sturdy pieces, colourful yet flat(so YAY, No Glare), stays together(the weave is good=no easily made mistakes), and the Artwork is Fabulous. Of the three I have done, I must admit that ITALY posed the biggest challenge! What a great way to discover a Country and it’s fabulous wines! I am currently not working due to the Pandemic situation, our Province has strict rules preventing us from gathering And my husband is in Palliative Chronic Care: Your beautiful well crafted Puzzles are a much welcome diversion. Many Thanks and, Yes = I am eyeing your newest AUSTRALIA for my next Challenge.
By far my favorite puzzle brand now! I ordered 2 (Italy and Germany) but have only gotten Italy together so far. It's challenging and fun - plus I'm learning so much about wine! My husband and I love doing puzzles and have tried many brands - but the quality and workmanship of these are far above anything we've ever tried before! I can't wait to order more!
This was, by far, the HARDEST puzzle I have EVER done!!! And I have done A LOOOOTTTTT of puzzles. Wow! growing up we were never allowed to look at box tops (and on this one... I HAD TO LOOK!) Felt like I was cheating. The pieces are glorious, soft and velvety and extremely vibrant in color. The printing is fabulous. The artwork detail is amazing. LOVE the artwork. The 'fit' is so good and the pieces are solid, the cardboard does not shed in layers or break. Thank you for making this such an enjoyable experience for me! I can not wait to do another one!
