Located a stone’s throw from Sondrio along the Adda River in Lombardy, where the massive Adamello mountain range serves as a backdrop. Participants and spectators will breathe the crisp, clean mountain air while sipping on fresh and fragrant Follador Prosecco, the official supplier of the event.
The area around Valtellina has much to offer sports-minded visitors; in addition to golf, you can practice all the mountain sports, from mountain biking to hiking to horse riding, and even summer skiing on the Stelvio Pass. The area also boasts a culinary tradition not to be missed; many local products are protected and guaranteed by special consortia and quality marks PDO and PGI.Besides the well-known bresaola, the area is also famous for its Bitto and Casera cheeses, the Pizzoccheri pasta made from 80%buckwheat, and cheese buttery Taragna polenta with a bit of buckwheat blended into the traditional cornmeal. These are dishes that are at their best when made with locally sourced ingredients, as with as all regional specialties.
