FOOD AND WINE
The products of this territory are exceptional and unrepeatable. Only here can you taste the typical asparagus of Mesola or the radicchio that, grown on the sand, blends with the Carnaroli rice of the Po Delta. The Comacchio eel reigns supreme in a cuisine that dates back thousands of years and brings with it ancient culture and traditions. Another example is pumpkin with its many uses, from classic cappellacci to gnocchi or it can be deep-fried. The extraordinary fish caught in the Adriatic Sea and the clams from Goro, an enchanted corner where between the islands and the mainland the sky merges with the sea. Everything pairs wonderfully with the red and white “Vini delle Sabbie” ("Wines from the Sands"), such as the renowned Fortana or Uva d'Oro. These are only some of the "gems" of local food and wine that make the wealth of this wonderful area so rich.
Crops grown along the Po Delta are characterised by the great benefits provided by the silt transported by the river deposited over the years on the land adjacent to the riverbanks. With the reclamation carried out in the early 20th century, these lands were progressively used for specialised fruit and vegetable cultivation.
