Land of suspended places, a small summary of the wonders of Italy
The province of Pesaro and Urbino boasts an extremely rich and versatile landscape: small villages and cities of art, maritime life and mountain traditions. Our vineyards extend from the coastal hills dominated by castles, such as the famous one in Gradara, which crown the cities of Pesaro and Fano, to those inland that surround the splendid Urbino.
Harmonious countryside that rise from the fertile valleys to cover the hills dominated by fortresses and fortified towns, some still almost intact in their medieval aspect.
In these border lands between Marche and Romagna, different traditions met and were able to merge, even in terms of typical food. The fish soup, passatelli, strozzapreti, Rossini cannelloni, beans with pork rinds, cuttlefish with peas, garagoli (sea snails flavored with aromatic herbs), piadina, Casciotta di Urbino, are just some of the local specialties with which our wines go very well.
