The Valtidone Wine Fest is staged from 5 to 26 September. Wine, the protagonist of the hills of the last Emilian valley, nestled between Liguria, Lombardy and Piedmont, becomes a reason for meeting, celebration and joviality.
Within the Valtidone Wine Fest the many variations of this nectar that the grapes give are celebrated: red, white and rosé, sweet, dry, still and sparkling. Each offers various possibilities of pairing with dishes of the gastronomic tradition that makes Piacenza the province that opens the Food Valley.
The protagonists of the 2021 edition are Borgonovo, Ziano, Alta Val Tidone and Pianello.
