Bright, Eat & Drink

The fertile river valleys, a climate blessed with four distinct seasons and a heritage steeped in the Italian traditions that celebrate the making and sharing of good food and wine are evident.

Prime beef, top notch dairy, nuts of all kinds, berries, tomatoes, herbs, stone and citrus fruits, apples, olives, all kinds of vegetables like sweet corn and asparagus and of course grapes, grow happily in this slice of heaven. Produce markets and visiting farm gates are a way to sample seasonal fresh food as well as locally made jams and preserves, chocolate, oils and ice-creams.
