Discover the Backcountry: The Binissalem wine route

Between Inca, Santa Maria del Cami, Santa Eugènia and Sencelles, a tourist road of around 40 kilometres runs through the Binissalem wine region, the only one in Mallorca with a protected designation of origin.
Their main ingredient is the autochthonous Manto Negra grape, which gives them a fruity taste and high alcohol content. You can see for yourself by visiting one of the 13 wine growers along the route. Between you: almond plantations, olive groves, fig and carob trees. And again and again dream views of the Sierra de Tramuntana.

Distilling right since Maria Theresa's time: On the Tyrolean schnapps route

The distilling of schnapps has a centuries-old tradition in Tyrol: of the 4000 distilleries in the region today, 2500 have held the distilling rights since Maria Theresa's time. The mostly smallholder farms process around five million kilograms of fruit a year into apricot, plum or pear brandy. 
On the Tyrolean Schnapps Route travellers can get to know selected distilleries - always on Saturdays. A 90-minute guided tour of the distillery explains the entire production chain - from the cultivation of the fruit in the plantations, through processing in the press, to the actual distillation. At the end, of course, there is a tasting.

Vineyard in Valtellina

Dry stone walls and terraces: The road of the wine in Valtellina

Maroggia, Sassella, Grumello, Inferno and Valgella: five routes form the Valtellina wine route between Lake Como and the Rhaetian Alps. For 110 kilometres they lead through a mountain landscape on whose steep slopes wine has been grown for almost 2000 years.
Nebbiolo in particular matures in the terraced parcels protected by dry stone walls. But also an excellent straw wine: the Sforzato. Along the way, wine growers invite you to visit their cellars and taste their wines. But also other local specialities like Bresaola, Violino and Pizzochheri should be tasted.
