A long and intense day tour perfect for real wine lovers in Valtellina, one of the hidden gems of Northern Italy. With its stunning alpine landscapes, its picturesque terraced vineyards built over centuries, the elegance of its wines and its genuine gastronomy, Valtellina, if not the most renowned, is one of the most beautiful and underrated regions in Italy. Valtellina produces almost exclusively red wines, made of Chiavennasca, the local name for the Nebbiolo grape, but different from Barolo or Barbaresco. Less tannic and powerful, the nebbiolos of Valtellina are more delicate, with a lot of elegance. Because of the topography and the terraces, mechanization is impossible and everything in the vineyards is done by hand, from growing the grape to harvesting.
With this tour you'll visit 1 winery in the morning, have lunch in Tirano in a very special cozy location and then visit a second winery on your way back!
