EMILIA-ROMAGNA

EMILIA-ROMAGNA

In Emilia-Romagna the pleasure had from food and wine is part of the local culture. There are many delights to be enjoyed: filled handmade pasta following traditional recipes, tasty charcuterie, and cheeses known around the whole world, among others. And of course to accompany these delicacies only wine will do, with those from the region often refreshing, sparkling and easy to drink. The region has fully 20 appellations. Heading towards the sea you come to the vineyards of the Colli Piacentini, followed by the Colli di Parma, then the Colli di Scandiano and the flat lands of Lambrusco (Modena and Reggio). Climbing again you reach the Colli Bolognesi, the Colli di Imola and Faenza, then the Colli di Rimini, and finish your trip in the other areas of Romagna planted to vine.

The terroir

With regard to wine production, there are many differences between Emilia and Romagna. To begin with, in Emilia Barbera, Croatina, Lambrusco and Fortana are some of the black varieties cultivated, while Malvasia di Candia, Montu, Ortrugo, Moscato Giallo, Pignoletto and Sauvignon are among the whites. In Romagna, on the other hand, you find Sangiovese and Montepulciano for the reds, while the whites include Albana, Trebbiano Romagnolo, Chardonnay and Bombino Bianco. In addition, the two areas differ by the fact that in Emilia the wines are predominantly sparkling, whereas they are still in Romagna.

The Southwest

Germany’s southwest covers the Land (state) of Baden-Württemberg and embraces one of Europe’s top-ranked holiday regions, the Black Forest. Its romantic valleys, fir-clad highlands, crystal-clear lakes and rushing waterfalls weave a magical alchemy of natural beauty. This is great hiking and cycling terrain, of course, punctuated by half-timbered villages, traditional farmhouses and vibrant towns like Baden-Baden and Freiburg. East of here, Lake Constance beckons with a storybook setting characterised by expansive views, a warm climate and stunningly elaborate Baroque churches. Stuttgart, the state capital, exudes cosmopolitan flair and is also the gateway to the thinly populated Swabian Jura region traversed by the Neckar River.

Historical Sites

First settled after the Civil War, Central Oregon was sparsely populated for a century until a tourist economy took root in outdoor recreation in the 1960s. Long an Indian home, eastern Oregon was passed up by early pioneers en route to the fertile Willamette Valley. Later arrivals found this country excellent for ranching and mining.

Today, with 120 days of sunshine annually and plentiful outdoor recreation, including snow skiing, mountain biking, golf and white-water rafting, the Bend area is popular with outdoors enthusiasts, and retirees. To the southwest, Mount Bachelor and the Cascade Lakes beckon anglers, skiers and hikers. To the south, the wildlife-rich Hart and Steens ranges thrust skyward. South of Bend, remnants of ancient volcanic activity can be seen at Newberry National Volcanic Monument. To the east, John Day Fossil Beds National Monument affords a glimpse into the distant past of this geologically rich area.

Despite Oregon’s public image as a land of deep forests, almost two-thirds of the state lies within this vast, thinly populated, largely arid landscape of sagebrush and pine, hawk and coyote.
