TWO EXCELLENCES FROM THE EMILIA REGION SEPARATED BY LITTLE OVER 80 KM.
First, we have the wines coming from the hills surrounding Bologna. This is a land with an ancient tradition of growing vines, cultivated by the Etruscans and later by the Latins who inherited the production techniques, strengthening the area’s wine-making tradition and handing it down to the present day.
An extraordinary landscape, rich history and culture make this area known the world over for the quality of its food and wine. Tucked in the hills to the south and west of Bologna and characterised by differing altitudes and soils as well as extremely varied microclimates, the land perfectly lends itself to the production of quality wines: from the great, world-renowned red and whites to the Colli Bolognesi Pignoletto DOCG produced here.
The Consorzio Vini Colli Bolognesi, founded in 1971, brings local producers together to protect and promote the Colli Bolognesi Pignoletto DOCG and the Colli Bolognesi DOC. More info www.collibolognesi.it
Then we have Aglio di Voghiera DOP garlic, a veritable delicacy from the province of Ferrara, characterised by its large bulb, shiny white colour and an intense yet delicate aroma that gives dishes a defined taste.
The production of this garlic is carried out each day in respect of its land of cultivation by adopting precise standards of conduct for each phase, from sowing to packaging. During production, all processes must be strictly performed within the demarcated area.
This is because the soil, climate, strong bond with the area, and generations of tradition in cultivating and preparing the product are decisive factors that result in its unique quality. More info www.cooperativavoghierese.it
