Oltrepò Pavese

2010IT005

The trip

The so called Oltrepò Pavese is located in the Southern Lombardy, a triangle between Piedmont and Emilia, just a few steps from Liguria. It used to be the ancient Salt Route, a crucial trading road connecting the sea to the inland, through the Appenines, as proved by the many castles and fortresses in the area. It is a rich and fertile area, from the flat land on the river Po to mountains even 1700 mt high, crossing many smooth hills, perfect for wine production. A Slow Tour through the area of Oltrepò Pavese is devoted to local products and flavors: a special pepper growing just in here, the Tortello Battalava that is a special kind of stuffed pasta that is so big you cannot eat just in once, a famous Salami made in Varzi. What about the wines? Taste some red and white varieties with a 500 years history: Pinot, Bonarda, Barbera, Moscato,Sangue di Giuda, Buttafuoco. Is it enough? I forgot to tell you there are thermal baths too!
