Our journey will start Oinoe, the city of wine,a winery that carries on the tradition of our local wine with passion and modern techniques that are attentive to the environment and sustainability. We will then walk among rows of Malvasia, Lambrusco, Barbera and Bonarda completely immersed in nature and I will start to tell you about the incredible history of the town of Guardasone di Traversetolo located on the first hills of Parma in the heart of the “Food Valley”. From the top of the hill we will admire breathtaking views, we will visit the church of San Lorenzo from the outside and we will appreciate the grandeur of the Guardasone castle, the Matildic castles and the Guardasone tower whose beauty was put in words by the famous italian poet Francesco Petrarca in one of his famous poems.

Along the way I will tell you stories of battles and powerful lords  who lived in this small town full of history and of a fearsome ghost that still seems to wander among these places on windy and moonless nights.

The walk will end with the tasting of the best wines of Oinoe.
