Did you know that Italy is the leading rice producer in Europe and Piemonte is Italy’s rice bowl?
Come and experience a guided tour of the Vercelli area, where an efficient system of water channels dating back to the 1860’s makes Italian rice so appreciated worldwide and “Risotto” so special.
You will be taken to an impressive state with an ancient abbey and a modern farm, to learn about the history, the tradition and the beauty of a world where men’s hard work is combined with modern techniques.
The tour ends with a tasting of “Risotto”, rice noodles, rice dessert and, as the saying says “Rice is born in water but dies in wine“, it will be accompanied by a glass of Ghemme wine.
The tour is provided in English, French, German or Spanish. Other languages on demand.
