Wine-growing history and tradition
Tenuta Colombarola: a winery nested int the Alta Val Tidone
The Val Tidone is a valley full of history and winemaking tradition in the province of Piacenza. It has always had a strategic and territorial importance, as demonstrated by the numerous castles spread throughout the duchy and its deeply rooted rural economy. The production of wine has always forged the identity of this territory, while deeply shaping its natural landscape. All along the Val Tidone, you can admire lush vineyards gently lying on the hills, from Pianello to Nibbiano, from Trebecco to Castelnovo Val Tidone, from Romagnese to Vicobarone.
The territory of Nibbiano
The ferile soil of Val Tidone
The territory of Nibbiano, supported by nature and a particular ecosystem, has always been devoted to viticulture and is among the most fertile areas of the Val Tidone, where the rolling hills covered with vineyards, stretching as far as the eye can see, are a typical and very suggestive landscapes. Nested in these hills, Tenuta Colombarola, a winery in the Alta Val Tidone geared to the production of French wines, is hosted in an estate of the 18th century with 600 hectares of land, comprising woods, pastures and 37 hectares of vineyards owned by the Travini family (of which 30 are already productive and 7 will be in the next few years).
