The Ronchi and Via Valcastellana
Site n. 31 - Angera Open Air Museum
The old Via Valcastellana still preserves some stretches finished with river cobbles, once known as 'Lombardy build'. This road-surfacing technique has been used since the Roman period and demonstrates the antiquity of the road, which connects the town with the farmhouses on San Quirico Hill and the Ronchi, with its terraced vine cultivations that are typical of the Varese area.
On 11th October 2005 the Minister of Agricultural Policy issued a decree recognizing the right to IGT certification of Ronchi Varesini wines.
