Oltrepò Pavese

A land full of hills, whose soft slopes are closely marked by rows of grapevine, drawn following the contour lines or the maximum gradient, like damask needlepoints above precious fabric. In this area, whose shape is similar to a bunch of grape, the climate is dry in winter time and mild in summer time and the soil is especially suited to the cultivation of the grapevine. This extremely diverse region - from the mountains, through the fertile hills till the lowland - owes its reputation to the oenological production.
