Program
Sunday 3rd September - Ortrugo & Chisola
The first event takes place in the Rocca square in Borgonovo. The protagonist is Ortrugo wine, the only local wine in this area, accompanied by a classic of Piacenza cuisine 'Chisöla'. This is a De.co. focaccia with ciccioli from Comune di Borgonovo V.T.

Sunday 1st October - Sette Colli in Malvasia
The second event takes place in Ziano Piacentino.
Malvasia wine is on stage, with its adaptable character that triumphs with a good taste of pancetta, one of the three 3 Dop cured meats in Piacenza province (the others are salami and coppa). Ziano is the first European producer of pancetta, as well as the area with most vineyards around Piacenza. Indeed one of the main protagonists of the event, where also Festa dell’Uva takes place, now in its 60th edition.

The third event takes place in Nibbiano, a historical borough full of charm that celebrates local wines, focussing on straw wines.
