In the heart of "Inferno"

Poggiridenti (literally “smiling hills”) rises in the middle of Valtellina. This nice, little village is located  at the doors of Sondrio in a privileged position on the Raethian side of Alps. It enjoys a mild climate thanks to the breeze from Lake Como, covered-up from the cold winds thanks to the Alps and to the total south exposure. You can admire an amazing view of typical mountain landscape mixed with mediterranean environment.


Poggiridenti’s old town is on top of the hill, connected to the new area by the Circuito dell’Inferno (Hell Circuit), a scenic road that runs through the "smiling hills". In this area farmers  grow vines to produce the "INFERNO" (hell), a typical red ruby wine warm and dry tasted,  scented of violet, rose and raspberry.


Here you can find “L’arbulé”, our family vineyard where our excellent wine comes to life. The name "INFERNO" derives from the exposure to the sun of the slope and to the very high temperatures it reaches during summer.


Bike pathways
