In the land of Lambrusco

Visiting wine cellars


This 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, Modena and those bordering on Mantua. An extremely agreeable sparkling wine is produced from these fragrant grapes and it is the most widely exported in the world.


The aficionados 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.

The bubbling toasts of Luciano Pavarotti during his tours are famous, as is pop star Luciano Ligabue's irreverent combination of "Lambrusco and pop-corn".


In addition to Lambrusco, the white wines of the hills of Scandiano and Canossa are well-known and appreciated. Today wine producers are orienting their wine production to the classic method, as well as fine raisin wines and wines from biologically cultivated vineyards.
