EUGANEAN HILLS WINE AND FOOD
As we can see, the Euganean Hills rise up from a flat earth. And first of all, they are the result of volcanic eruptions millions of years ago. Hence the landscape is in fact, a succession of a perfect geometry of vineyards, villages and medieval castles. And also villas from the Renaissance and patrician houses. Furthermore, along your way you will find churches, hermitages and monasteries. Hence, in our times, the Benedictine and the Camaldolese live in these religious sites.
DOCG COLLI EUGANEI FIOR D’ARANCIO
Most relevant, in 1969, the Euganean Hills wines have got the “DOC Colli Euganei” appellation. While the grape of yellow Muscat has got the recognition of the DOCG. In the detail, the grape is “Fior d’Arancio”. And the appellation that they give is the “DOCG Colli Euganei Fior d’Arancio”. Along the wine road of these hills, it is possible to find the favorite places of famous people. And in particular, we talk about Petrarch, Goethe and Foscolo. Like also Byron and Shelley.
And as a result, this is also the area of the Thermal Baths, the most famous spa center in Europe.
