To all the Food&Wine lovers, we suggest our exclusive tasting tour in Valtellina. Join us on this interesting tour among cellars and vineyards, getting closer to “Valtellina Big Red Wines” and tasting all the worldwide-famous genuine local products. The first cellar we visit is “Casa Vinicola Negri”, one of the DOCG most renowned antique Cellars. Based nearby Sondrio, its location will surely enchant you: a delightful castle, dated back to the 15th century, with such a beautiful court. The Owner will guide us through an underground path, walking along narrow hallways and several rooms. We’ll discover all Wine secrets and working processes. Our tour will be followed by a wine & food tasting, including 4 local wines and DOP Casera cheese, rye bread and other delicacies. Around noon we’ll move to the second Cellar, precisely to the “Casa Vinicola Nera” one, a 70 y.o. traditional cellar. We’ll learn all about wine techniques, from the beginning of the working process to the end. Then we’ll reach the Wine Bar to enjoy the food and wine tasting, which includes 5 different local wines, local cold cuts such as the typical IGP Bresaola and cheese. If you’d like to buy some special product, just ask the Corner Valtellina. Our final location to visit will be Località Poggiridenti, where we’ll tour some of their private vineyards…really an open-air wonder! Driving back to Sondrio, we’ll have a short break at Azienda Agrituristica La Fiorida, an enchanting place rich in tradition and passion, located in one of the most scenic area of Bassa Valtellina. This is a very huge farm: you’ll find a beautiful agritourism, a stable and a barn, as well as a cheese factory, an orchard and a useful outlet where you could buy all their tasty products. Unwillingly, now it’s time to come back home but, thanks to this amazing journey, we’re sure you have enriched your Food&Wine cultural knowledge..and your palate will be pleased too!
