There is no better accompaniment to a slice of Valtellina cheese than a glass of wine from the local mountains.

Our itinerary begins in Sondrio, where you can explore the town and then focus on wine tastings. Among the wines on offer is ‘Inferno’, a wine made in one of the smallest and most inaccessible areas of Valtellina, where the vines grow on steep south-facing slopes.

Time:  10.00 am
Arpepe winery – Sondrio
Arpepe winery gives us the opportunity to taste one of the real gems of Valtellina: Valtellina Superiore Inferno Fiamme Antiche DOCG, made from Nebbiolo, a rare grape variety that has adapted over the centuries to perfectly express the goodness of the earth. For five generations, Arpepe winery has produced wine following the most ancient tradition, drawing on 150 years of accumulated knowledge.

Time: 11.00 am
Nobili winery - Poggiredenti Piano
The Nobili Winery owns five hectares of vineyards, located between Poggiridenti and Sondrio, where it produces great wines, including Inferno and Sassella. The precious Inferno Nobili is a wine made from grapes from the Rhaetian terraces in Poggiridenti: weather permitting, you can walk past the vineyards on the hill dominated by the ancient Carmine church, in the “Secondo Girone dell’Inferno” (Second Circle of Hell).

Time: 12.30 pm
Nino Negri winery - Chiuro
Since 1897, Nino Negri winery has been one of the most historic, well-established wineries in Valtellina. Today, the winery boasts 1500 new French and American oak barriques. After the visit, it is worth continuing to Teglio and stopping off at the Fracia restaurant in a particularly beautiful area of Valtellina, surrounded by vineyards. In an oasis of taste and tradition, you can treat yourself to the classic dishes of Valtellina cuisine and sample forgotten recipes. 

Time: 3.00 pm 
La Perla winery - Teglio
Managed by Marco Triacca, the La Perla winery is certainly one of the most advanced wine producers in Valtellina. Founded in 2009, this winery produces wines such as Valtellina Superiore and Sforzato from Nebbiolo or from the native Pignola Valtellinese, which is also used to make one of the rare local sparkling wines: this zero-dosage wine is matured for around 20 months before opening.
