TIGULLIO WINES

The Liguria Region has a good wine tradition, favored by its position on the sea, that has always facilitated maritime traffics and marketing of products.
The Gulf of Tigullio, bounded west by the Mount of Portofino and east by Punta Manara, designs one of the most extraordinary sceneries of the Mediterranean Sea.
This area of excellence for international tourism, rich in history, art and culture is characterized by a very interesting wine production, dating back to Roman period, while during the Middle Ages it increased becoming an important activity for the territory.
The "Denomination of Controlled Origin Golfo del Tigullio" established with Ministerial Decree on 1st September 1997, regulates wide range of white, rosé, red, sparkling and passito wines.
The white wines are made by the main vines Vermentino and Bianchetta Genovese, in different percentage between 20% and 70%. For the remaining part other non aromatic white vines are used up to the percentage of 40%.
The red or rosé wines are made by the main vines Ciliegiolo and Dolcetto, in different percentage between 20% and 70%. For the remaining part other red vines are used up to the percentage of 40%.
The Golfo del Tigullio DOC Wines are produced in a limited territory of 55 hectares along the coast and the first inland, mainly located around Sestri Levante and along the Petronio and Graveglia Valleys.
