Along the four valleys that connect the Apennines to the plain, the three PDOs that make the local gastronomy famous are produced: coppa, pancetta and salami.

This fact alone would be enough to justify a visit to these lands, but that is not all.

The Piacenza hills are in fact producers of excellent D.O.C. wines that have their ancient roots in local history, from the Etruscans to the Romans.

Among the whites, Ortrugo stands out, among the reds, Gutturnio, while the sweet Vin Santo is produced in Vigoleno.

Our gourmet tours are journeys into flavours that are the result of old local traditions and could be combined with dedicated historical and artistic visits.

The grape varieties of the Parma hills that accompany the dishes of traditional cuisine to perfection are the aromatic Malvasia di Candia, the Barbera, the Bonarda and, of course, the Lambrusco. Young and sparkling wines, combining lightness and cheerfulness. The tour of a wine cellar on the southern hills of the city lets them be tasted in association with typical local products, first of all the famous PDO (Parmigiano Reggiano, Prosciutto di Parma and Culatello di Zibello) that exalt their qualities.
