Oltrepo’ Pavese is a hilly territory of unspoiled beauty. For centuries, elements in its clay-and-limestone soil have combined to create the finest grapevines. Their quality was recognized even in pre-Roman times, as attested by Pliny, Strabo and Virgil. Located in Lombardy, it owes its name to its peculiar position south of the Po River and merging with the northern Appenines. The area vaunts outstanding traditions and cultures, influenced by sea,
mountan and plain. It alone produces more than 70% of DOCcertified wines.
