Food & Wine excursion in Sonvico - 28.09.2019

A comfortable excursion, a pleasant stimulus to reflect on the complexity of the links between all living beings and on the role of each of us in changing the fragile environmental balance in which we are immersed.

It starts directly on foot from the bucolic nucleus of Sonvico, where it is interesting to admire the medieval structure, with the narrow alleys, stairways and arcades. The excursion winds along beautiful paths, the view widens over the lake and the city of Lugano, or over the limestone spiers of the Denti della Vecchia. About halfway, with a small detour, you will arrive at Fattoria del Faggio where, after visiting the structure, a rich and traditional Ticino lunch with products of their production will be provided. Furthermore, a wine producer in the area (Vini Piazza di Sonvico) will also delight the participants with good local merlot. After an excellent convivial lunch, you will walk back into the woods to continue along the thematic path to discover chestnut woods, streams and mills in a breathtaking natural context.
