From the mountains to the plain (their border runs along the via Emilia), from the Grand Countess Matilde di Canossa to Gualtieri's naive painter Antonio Ligabue, the history and culture of this land have always revolved around the country and its fruits: foods, wisdom and values. The typical wine is called Lambrusco.

Today, the agricultural province of Reggio Emilia is in revolutionary ferment that is spreading from the barrels of wine to stir up the farmers, restaurant owners and the entire population and set everyone thinking. This ferment is called Lambrusco.

It is the wine of excellence from Emilia, a unique expression of Italian wine culture.

It represents the most widely grown family of vines in the countryside that stretches east of Parma to include the territories of Reggio Emilia, Modena and those bordering on Mantua. An extremely agreeable sparkling wine is produced from these fragrant grapes and it is the most widely exported around the world.

The fans are divided between those who prefer the sweet or dry varieties, the aroma of violets or that of red fruits. The fine cooking of Emilia loses something of its character if not accompanied by this excellent sparkling wine.
