By Vacanze Lago • on May 22, 2015

The town of Colico is located on the northern arm of Lake Como surrounded by Pian di Spagna Nature Reserve and the majestic mountain peak of Mount Legnone (Lake Como’s highest mountain 1609 m.). As a result of its unique location, Colico is an ideal destination for travelers who love nature and enjoy relax. But it is also an excellent destination for sport, active life and fun.

In the days 6th –12th and 13the June, 2015 the fourth edition of Colico in the Cellar will be held, an event dedicated to wine and food of the territory, with the possibility to taste the typical products of the local cuisine and excellent wine from the neighboring areas.
There will be two routes to follow: the Local Path (tasting of seven brands of local wine), and the National Route (tasting of wine throughout Italy), accompanied by local food tastings.

To access the Cellars you will need a pass that can be purchased in advance at the tourist office in Colico (via Pier 7, opening hours: Monday 16.00/19.00 from Tuesday to Saturday 9.30/12.30 16.00/19.00 Sunday 9.30/12.30 Tel. 338 9920917) or during the days of the event at the store located in Piazza della Chiesa di Villatico starting at 15.00 each day at a cost of €13,00. With the pass you will be given a glass and the wine glass holder.
The tour is very enjoyable for everyone, but please note that Italy’s law doesn’t permit selling alcoholic beverage to teens under 18 y.o.
The pass allows you wine tasting in 7 cellars of the choosen route. It does not include catering service available upon payment within the various wineries.
It is possible to buy also a pass “escorts” at a cost of €7,00 which entitles access to the cellars, without any wine tasting.
