We have planned an itinerary that allows you to discover the area of ??Valtellina. Valtellina has been a wine producing area for more than 2,000 years. Over the centuries, farmers discovered that the higher altitude improved the wine including its alcohol content. Vineyards were cultivated on complex, ultra-steep terraces along the Valtellina’s preposterously steep hillsides. Valtellina produces almost exclusively red wines, made of Chiavennasca, the local name for the Nebbiolo grape. Less tannic and powerful, the Nebbiolos of Valtellina are tasteful and delicate. Enjoy a wine tasting during the day! ( a stop for lunch is included, fees at your own expenses )

Pass By: Valtelline Valley, Valtelline Valley, Province of Sondrio, Lombardy
Valtellina is one of Italy’s most dramatic wine regions, and one of the least explored: it stretches from Morbegno in the west, then heads east to the main town of Sondrio and carries on to Tirano, all along the Adda River. The wine country is a viable area for wine tours from Milan and offers to the wine lovers looking for an unusual wine region off the beaten track a selection of small, boutique wine estates, stunning alpine scenery and superb gastronomy.
