Enogastronomy represents a synthesis, and a very pleasant one, of the context of life of a local community, and we must not forget that it always finishes by coinciding with the tourist’s idea of a holiday. That idea contains many different components, such as the natural environment, history and culture, social models, particular economic produce.
So it is important to ask ourselves who is the enogastronomic tourist and what he is looking for. He is not a mere “gourmet”, a lover of foods and wines, neither is he a tourist who is only interested in tasting foods and wines of the best quality.
The way to approach food-and-wine tourism has changed in recent years, because we have passed from a prevailing interest in the product – by passionate connoisseurs – towards a more general interest in typical products as a means of getting to know a whole region.
In a country like Italy there are an infinite number of products and for this reason it is necessary to know in depth the methodologies used to obtain the final product. Our job has led us to select a small number of producers who have chosen quality and genuineness in their productions. We have chosen some of the best made in Italy products.
