EAT! DRINK! ITALY! WITH VIC RALLO celebrates Italy’s authentic food, people, history, wine and culture — from the Alps to the southern shores of Sicily. Host Vic Rallo, a New Jersey restaurateur, Italian wine expert and raconteur, tours a cheese cave (and former Mussolini bunker), hunts for the elusive white truffle, explores Napoleon’s wine tunnels, visits a Slow Foods superstar in her humble kitchen, and ventures 20 meters underground to the roots of one of Italy's most celebrated wine varietals. Along the way, he enthusiastically shares information about Italian ingredients, technique and history. EAT! DRINK! ITALY! also features the insights of wine connoisseur Anthony "Tony" Verdoni — known by many in his industry as ‘Il Professore’ (the Professor) — who introduces Italy’s most sought-after winemakers and reveals the stories behind some of the world's most delectable nectars.

Eat! Drink! Italy! Premieres exclusively on Create, Tuesday, July 22 at 6:30 p.m. Check your local schedule for additional broadcasts.
