A family, a story, a great wine

Let’s discover the Bianchi family’s organic farm. Located in Arogno since 1998, the farm has been handed down from one generation to the next, remaining in the family at all times. The Bianchi family produces wine, Sambì (also known as the “Champagne of the poor”), honey and by-products in a sustainable way and with great respect for biodiversity. Indeed, all their products boast Bio Suisse certification. After enjoying some enchanting views of Lake Lugano, our guided tour will also introduce us to the unique landscapes of the beautiful Mara Valley. Lastly, we will also visit the village of Rovio, where more pleasant surprises await us.
