Bergamo has always been known as wine country. It the last few years attention has shifted to quality not quantity, so come and try as many as you’d like! You won’t be disappointed! 

The Bergamask countryside was once well known for its wine production, which at the time was focussed above all on quantity.

Today it demands excellence, and this can be seen in Valcalepio DOC red and white wines, which are produced on the sunny slopes of a large hilly area at an altitude of between 300 and 600 metres.

The Valcalepio wine and food routes wind through this prestigious and environmentally important area. Justifiably renowned, Moscato di Scanzo DOCG is a classic vino da meditazione, a “meditation wine” or wine to be savoured alone, produced from vineyards introduced by the Romans or possibly even earlier by the Etruscans.
