The Scuropasso Valley, the best terroir for the production of Pinot and Buttafuoco

The Scuropasso Valley is characterised by rolling hills and a stream that runs through it, giving it its name. According to legend, it was Hannibal who gave it its name. It is famous for the beauty of its landscapes and for its wine production. It is the best terroir for the production of Pinot, still and sparkling, and the production area of Buttafuoco dell'Oltrepò Pavese.

The stream rises in Colli Verdi, in the hamlet of Pometo, and then flows northwards through a valley of woods and vineyards, among the hills, crossing the municipalities of Rocca de' Giorgi, Montalto Pavese, Montecalvo Versiggia, Lirio, Pietra de' Giorgi and Cigognola. From here it flows into the Broni area and continues along the plain towards the Po.

What to do and see in the Scuropasso Valley

The route from the Colli Verdi to Broni is a succession of wonders, different natural environments and wine cellars.

The valley is characterised by the presence of castles such as Cigognola, Rocca de' Giorgi and Pietra de' Giorgi with their ancient villages. Examples of the history and culture of the area.

The Scuropasso area is also a popular destination for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. When the vineyards disappear, the oak and locust woods make their way to the first rocks of the Ligurian Apennines. Those of the Carmine Pass, overlooking Lake Trebecco.
