Most people who come to visit the magnificent Lake Como do not pay attention to the Alto Lario, its northen area, which instead deserves it because it is another amazing part of this magic part of Italy. Actually it is able of deep emotions thanks to its hidden artistic wonders such as the romanesque Basilica of Santa Maria del Tiglio and the XV century church of Saint Mary in Gravedona, the parish church of Peglio with striking frescoes by the artist Fiammenghino dating the XVII century , the church of Saint James in Livo placed on a panoramic rise and surrounded by chestnut Woods, Dongo and the places where Mussolini spent the last days of his life … Furthermore, wide panoramas, old villages set in beautiful mountains from where you can enjoy great views of the Lake and authentic tastes of an ancient gastronomic tradition.
That’s why I wish to propose you a unique itinerary visiting these treasures and including a private discovery of a local winery which produces its own red and white wines, olive oil and honey. It has a very stunning position overlooking the whole Alto Lario, breathtaking views and authetincal local products and tastes!!! Run by a young couple, whose dream was to transform a small family production into a professional winemaking one, every bottle of their wine contains the features of the local land, of the local “territoir”. They want to support and maintain the peculiarities of the grapes giving so to the wines a unique mark.
The perfect combination of art, culture, landscape and authentic life!!! Discover it with me!!!
