Things to do: Wine.
Cupramontana and its territory have always been linked to the cultivation of graoevines and production of wine.
For more than half a century (since 1939), Cupramontana has been known as "Capitale del Verdicchio" thanks to the numerous
awards given to our wine cellars.
The name “Verdicchio” comes from the color of the acorn, which maintains nuances of green even at full maturation.
Verdicchio grapes can produce sparkling wines, dry meal wines, great aging reserves and excellent passito (dessert wine) and can also be distilled to create greenish grappa.
Among the special wines is the "Visciola wine".
This wine flavored with sour cherries for several centuries is a craftsmanship of the Vallesina countryside. There are recipes dating back to the mid-nineteenth century and a "Visciola wine" label from Cupramontana dating back to 1925 (it can be found at Label Museum, MIG, Cupramontana).
It is a traditional "liqueur" usually tasted at the end of the meal that accompanies traditional local desserts but is also matched with chocolate.
