The Essence of Emilia
Emilia is considered by many to be the heart of Italian industry, wine production and gastronomy.
The essence of Emilia is the industriousness and generosity of its people, which was crucial for the area’s economic growth after the war.
In Emilia, many prestige brands have been created in various business sectors that are now well-known to a worldwide audience.
The territory of Emilia Romagna has always been well-suited due to its geographical layout, to the cultivation of vines and the production of ideal grapes for winemaking.
An exceptional wine economy has grown up along the Via Emilia, which, since the days of the Romans, has carried wines throughout Europe and worldwide.
“A semi-sparkling Emilian wine, with a lively red color, made from the grape of the same name”: that is the definition of Lambrusco given by Zingarelli’s Dictionary of the Italian Language.
It is actually more correct to speak of a “family of indigenous grape varieties”, originating from the wild grapes of the Po Valley.
