The Lake Maggiore area is renowned in Italy and abroad for its wide range of products. The local cheeses, like the celebrated Bettelmatt or the tasty Ossolano d’Alpe, are even more delicious eaten with the high quality honey produced in the area. To complement these delectable hams and salamis, the locally produced wines are perfect: full-bodied reds like Ghemme Docg and Nebbiolo from the Novara hills, Prunent and Neuv Bruschett from the Ossola valleys, or the wines of the Angera area.
The Lake Maggiore area and the valleys in its hinterland are renowned in Italy and abroad for the cheese produced from animals grazing on mountain pastures, which is a feature of the local culinary culture. The ample lush pastures of the valleys have given the area a long tradition of high quality cheese production.
