Our first stop will be at a small historic Valtellina winery located in the ancient home of the noble Quadrio, in Chiuro for an unforgettable 3 wine tasting experience. The winemaker Paolo carries on the family tradition with his sons Luca and Matteo respecting as much as possible the long aging time of Nebbiolo. This is the only winery at the moment that uses the precious antioxidant active ingredients of grapes to produce anti-aging creams, based on red wine.
Lunch will be served in a Michelin listed restaurant renowned for highlighting the ancient land flavors in its dishes. This is the best time to relax and get to know your travelling companions while enjoying the world famous typical dish of “pizzoccheri” (pasta made with buckwheat flour, topped with Casera cheese and melt with butter, potatoes and cabbage) and the “sciatt”,delicious cheese-filled buckwheat fritters.
After lunch your driver will leave you at the Tirano train station to hop on the Bernina Express train for an amazing 2 hours trip up the mountains to admire the glacier and reach Saint Moritz. The driver will pick you up upon arrival to take you to the old town for some free time for shopping (maybe chocolate?) and then he will drive you back to Lake Como.
Important info: We cross the Swiss border- you wlil need your passport!
