Borghi delle Rocche - Castellinaldo


Castellinaldo is a small uphill town mostly dedicated to the viticulture: the 63 % of its lands are vineyards. From the balcony of the historical centre there is a suggestive view on cultivated landscape, formed by geometrical hills crossed by sinuous lines. Wineries of Castellinaldo offers visits and tastings in their cellars or in the local "Bottega del Vino", an association of wine producers.
A curiosity of the town is the "Bocce quadre" competition, a special event where to play square-shaped bocce, ideal to be utilized in the uphill roads.
