In the historic vineyards of Trontano there will be a tasting of wines paired with typical local products such as rye bread or cheese from the Val d'Ossola and sausages of the Anzasca valley. Descending through vineyards on old mule tracks you return by train to Domodossola, the capital of Ossola. Estimated time of arrival 18:30 approx.
