Journey to Ancient Wine Terraces

Journey to Ancient Wine Terraces

Hike and bike through Valtellina's terraced vineyards to discover and taste the fruits of ancient wine growing traditions.

Journey through the Via dei Terrazzamenti to an altitude of 900 metres above sea level as you hike and bike your way around terraced vineyards and authentic villages. Discover a region shaped gently by viticulture that preserve authentic and rural life in the mountains, and see the dry stone wall terraces, now celebrated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Savour the wine in centuries-old vineyards and get to know the local heroes who continue these distinctive traditions to produce wine. Valtellina is full of small, family-owned businesses who maintain their roots as they care for the land.
