The Valtellina region is located on the extreme north of Lombardy, close to the Swiss border. The valley, crossed by the river Adda, is limited to the West by Lake Como and to the East by the Bormio Mountains.
Wine producing in the area dates back as far as the first human settlements in the region. Before the Romans, the Etruscans were already fermenting grape juice in the area. Leonardo da Vinci himself was describing the local wines as powerful and exciting. For a long time until the early 19th century, Valtellina, which was under Swiss influence, was exporting its wine to its northern neighbor. The locals realized that the vines won in maturity in altitude and then decided to build terraces, shaping the landscapes of the region.
We’ll make our own harvest in a small private vineyard, focus on wine making process, stay in a real Agriturismo with local friends and visit the magnificent valley.
