The inside story
At the foot of the Alps, cosmopolitan and lively, lies the region of Lombardy, a summer and winter destination for holiday-takers from all over the world. In its gorgeous green valleys, among hills, rivers, and lakes, food traditions are passed on from one generation to the next. Discover these traditions by following the “food and wine itineraries”, paths that help preserve and increase the value of typical local products.
Start your journey and discover the area around Pavia, called Oltrepò Pavese. This land stretches south of river Po, not too far from Liguria, and is one of the most important regions for the cultivation of Pinot Noir vineyards. Other culinary products from this area include Parmigiano Reggiano and Grana Padano cheeses. Leave Pavia and continue your journey: find out the beauty of Franciacorta, with its award-winning sparkling wines. From Brescia to Lake Iseo, the Franciacorta region will amaze you with its well-finished vineyards, wonderful wine cellars, medieval villages, and cloisters where time seems to have stopped.
