Parma, Modena and Bologna: The Holy Trinity of Italy’s gourmet capitals, iconic sports cars and a subdued luxury lifestyle.
Emilia-Romagna is the most famous region of Italy where everyone forgets its name. Probably because you are familiar with Parmigiano Reggiano from Parma, Balsamic vinegar from Modena and the ubiquitous sugo Bolognese, from none other than, Bologna. Not to mention tortellini, lasagna, prosciutto di Parma, fresh-egg pasta and basically every other gastronomic delicacy you want on an Italian menu. Put simply, Emilia-Romagna is the food capital of Italy.
Of course, in a country where food and wine are inseparable, Emilia-Romagna boasts of equally great wine. In the rolling hills of the Apennines, vineyards of the historic Sangiovese grape sweep the slopes and become powerful bottles of red wine that match in body to the luscious foods of the region.
The principles of high-quality extend well beyond food and wine in Emilia-Romagna. Home to the most iconic sports cars in the world, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati, the region is a leader of Italian design. Test drive your dream car in the morning then enjoy the finesse of a Michelin-starred restaurant before an afternoon of wine tasting for a wine experience that is truly Made in Italy.
