Tidone Valley

Borderland, Val Tidone is crossed by nature trails with enchanting views. History and culture are intertwined in the hilly landscape with the charm of viticultural crops and the skilful hand of agri-food artisans. The excellence of the typical products goes perfectly with the wines of the Colli Piacentini.

Val Tidone is dominated by an undisputed nature between rocky spurs and hills dotted with vineyards. The villages “painted” in the landscape dot this enchanted valley, characterized by numerous churches, sanctuaries and ancient castles.

The beauties of Val Tidone, its colors and its heritage, can be perceived along the panoramic roads along the ridges of the slopes. Val Tidone is in fact a borderland, still crossed by pilgrims through its historical and naturalistic paths.

Food and wine in Val Tidone… Perhaps for this alone it would be worth a visit to this beautiful valley!

The cuisine is varied and rich in taste and thanks to its producers confirms the primacy of Piacenza as the only province in Europe with 3 DOP cold cuts such as Coppa Piacentina, Pancetta piacentina and Salame piacentino. You can find homemade cured meats such as “salame gentile”, “mariola”, “gras pist” (minced pork lard with knife and garlic) and the famous “ciccioli” or “graséi” (pieces of meat and pork fat cooked, salted and dried).

From Cotechino to “buslan”, to “chisöla” (focaccia with cracklings) you can taste the tradition through special De.Co products. But the undisputed symbol of street food in the valley is the batarò: a puffy oval sandwich that eaten warm enhances the flavors of salami or cheese.

In these clayey lands are produced excellent wines typical of the DOC Colli Piacentini: Gutturnio, Malvasia di Candia Aromatica and Ortrugo. The numerous companies in the area work the vineyards respecting the local tradition in combination with the best cellar technology; They welcome the visitor for visits, guided tastings, walks through the vineyards, organize picnics and dinners in the vineyard immersed in a unique atmosphere. The wines of Val Tidone are a real treasure to accompany and complete the dishes and typical local products.

The beauty of Val Tidone is made of attention and care both for the products of the earth and for guests who want to discover it.
