Hills of Scandiano and Canossa

Excursions from the city to the Apennines

 

The territory of Reggio has always had a noble vocation for farming and wine growing, it has been famous for its way of life and for the history of Countess Matilda, and now it encompasses the Route of Wines and Flavours of the Hills of Scandiano and Canossa.

 

Founded in 1999, the scope of the consortium is stimulate appreciation of its typical local specialties by promoting and organising gastronomical and cultural tourism.

From the gateways to the city of Reggio Emilia, to south of the ancient Via Emilia, in the hills, across the mountain plateaus, through the Enza and Secchia valleys and up to the crest of the Apennines between Tuscany and Emilia, there are dozens of producers of typical specialties and local attractions who love to tell their stories.

 

So, by car or on a bicycle, it will be possible to make a personal acquaintance with the traditions of production, the naturalistic attractions, the cultural and historical realities of this little big land as sparkling as its Lambrusco, as appetizing as its Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, as delicious as its hams and salamis, its Parmigiano Reggiano, its famous erbazzone...altogether as rich as its culinary traditions.
