This is a “corridor” between Piedmont and the Aosta Valley, with an abundance of different landscapes, ranging from the planes to the Alps, passing by Moraines, lakes and valleys. From the Po river you can make your way up the gentle hills, to the spectacular natural “monument” represented by the “Morainic Amphitheatre of Ivrea”, and then go on up to the steep mountains. The different scenarios and the many different cultures of the people who inhabit these lands will turn your visit into an uninterrupted discovery.
The area encloses a wealth of historic, artistic and enogastoronomic treasures. It is disseminated with castles with massive walls and elegant residences, which are an everlasting testimony of illustrious Lords and high-sounding feuds. Quite typical are the terraces in Carema with their dry stone walls and stone pillars: the pride of a community which passes down its building secrets. The great variety of food specialties and confectionary art add to the grand tradition of hospitality of the Canavese area.
This is a land rich in vineyards, proof of the ancient roots of its passion for wine. The many different natural environments and microclimates have allowed viticulture to develop and to grow many different grapevine varieties since Roman times. From the plains to the first mountain spurs, vineyards are an integral part of the landscape.
From the white Erbaluce grapes we obtain three kinds of wine; for the production of Passito, the grapes rest in the lofts for a few months before being pressed, hence aromas become concentrated and come out strong in the glass.
The noblest red grapes in Piedmont, Nebbiolo, are dominant on the higher slopes, on the border with the Aosta Valley where the enticing Carema wine comes from.
