Private Guided Winery Tour
Casa Vinicola Nino Negri, founded in 1897, is located in Chiuro in the old fifteenth-century Castello Quadrio. It is one of the most renowned
wineries in Valtellina and a synonym for Valtellina wines all over the world.
Great commitment is demanded at every moment of vine-growing in Valtellina, a difficult, but rewarding landscape winemaking is often
called “heroic”. For over 100 years, Nino Negri has given this commitment, nurturing the grapes’ potential and literally handcrafting wines
of superior quality and character.
All vineyard work, including vineyard management and harvest is done entirely by hand along the terraces supported by a myriad of age-old
dry stonewalls, a symbol of this valley. During the harvest the grapes are transported down the mountain by helicopter so as to get them to
the winery as quickly as possible.

Enjoy free time to walk through Sondrio
Sondrio is quite a small town which can be easily explored on foot and has only a population of approximately 22,000 inhabitants.
Centuries ago, Sondrio was a military camp for the Roman Empire but the present day town was established by the Lombards.
After the Lombard Empire fell down it became a part of the Holy Roman Empire and much of the region was managed from here.
The heart of Sondrio is Garibaldi Square. Not far from it is the Palazzo Sassi, that is home of the Art and History Museum
of Valtellina. In a dominant position, near the ancient road to the Valmalenco, linking the town to Switzerland, stands the Masegra Castle,
housing the Historical Museum of the Grisons Domination.
The church of Santi Gervasio e Protasio rebuilt in Neoclassical-style in 1838, was built in the 12th century as a Romanesque pieve and collegiate
church. Other sights include the Torre Ligariana, once the collegiate’s bell tower, and the Palazzo Pretorio, once the seat of the Grisons
