Brave viticulture in Liguria where the vineyards overlooking the sea.
For many reasons the production of wine in Liguria is referred to as a miracle. Farming and grape growing here is extremely difficult due to the shape of the territory and it is only thanks to the great passion, persistent work and dedication of the locals that these stunning sheer terraces could be realised.
n this area there are 8 DOC wines and 4 IGT wines; the most important of these are produced in the areas of the Colli di Luni. Schiacchetrà, in particular, being the oldest and finest is considered to be the undisputed leader among the wines of this region.Other remarkable wines include white wines with a savoury flavour such as Pigiato and Vermentino and the red wines Ormeasco ad Rossese.
Liguria is not only well known for its wine, but also its food. The traditional Liguria dishes display a great variety of fresh sauces (pesto sauce is famous worldwide), the well-known focaccia, testaroli (a typical first course) and excellent olive oil. These dishes gather together in a perfect mix of sea, wood products and local vegetables from the area.
