Wine Route Colli di Candia and Lunigiana
In the northern part of Tuscany, in a picturesque landscape created by the proximity of the peaks of the Apuan Alps with the marble quarries and the sea, there is also room for wine production.
The hills of Lunigiana, along the ancient Via Francigena, the terraces were created to make the most of every slope. Today the wine business of the territory is an established reality that you can discover along the Wine Route Colli di Candia and Lunigiana.
The rural world of the Apuan Alps is not as the typical Tuscan countryside but it is a landscape shaped by centuries: a perfect balance between forests, vineyards, churches, castles and farmhouses.
It is a border area where the Tuscan flavors come together with those of Liguria and this is also reflected in the local wines. The most famous and popular are the DOC “Candia dei Colli Apuani” and “Colli di Luni”, but also the IGT from Val di Magra.
Along the wine route you can taste numerous bottles of them produced from farms that work with passion on the territory. There are also wineries and wine bars specializing in the sale of local products and wines and many farms.
The Wine Route of the Colli di Candia and Lunigiana starts south of the town of Montignoso and follows the whole Apennine ridge through Massa, Carrara, Fosdinovo and ends in Pontremoli.
