TASTE OF LIGURIA
When you think of Italian regions producing wines, Liguria is not the first that comes to your mind. But, have you ever tasted the ligurian wines?
Vineyards in the ligurian territory are sprinkled wherever it's permitted by the conditions: planting vines in some cases becomes a challenge, because of the territory conformation, which is rocky and steep and most of the times vineyards are cultivated in steep slopes where the access is permitted only on foot or boat or where harvesting is done just by hand and the grapes are transported in baskets on the shoulders of the farmers.
Viticulture in Liguria can be defined as "heroic" but all this effort is rewarded because the result obtained are small quantities of wines which are precious, particular and can be distinguished by other Italian wines.
