Italian Wine and Food of Le Marche Regione
Simple phrases often heard in the piazzas after the Sunday church service are the quest for a slower pace of life, healthier tastes and smells.
A return to traditional products of the
Marchigiana region, a stoppage of time and the daily race against time, relief from the stress that we build up in our lives are Mentioned.
Amongst the verdant hills of Verdicchio, Rosso Piceno and Rosso Conero country it comes naturally to stop every now and again, to take back a bit of our lives, to enjoy the light and heat of summer. The grapes growing along the neat rows in the vineyards are getting plumper every day. Once again, we see the promise of being able to raise a glass of wine in the company of friends.
In Le Marche you’ll find bottles of bubbly produced by the Metodo Classico as well as by the Charmat Method. You’ll find reds, whites and rosé. Le Marche is a land of Sangiovese, Montipulciano, Verdicchio, Rosso Piceno and Rosso Conero winegrowers and are producing some truly splendid wines and champagnes.
The awards earned by our producers who have competed in international contests serve to further encourage their commitment to reach even higher pinnacles of excellence. The figures emerging from 2011 and the early months of 2012 are very positive. In the next post I will provide details of cultural tours and/or food and wine tours here in our region.
