Our territory, aside from being a beloved destination for tourists who want to enjoy the lake, is also well known for a variety of gastronomic excellences and for wine. Thanks to its climate and morphology, the inland of the lake is covered by many vineyards, from which a rich variety of wine is produced, and its unique colour, flavour and smell are recognizable from all around the world.
