Valchiavenna and Valtellina there are numerous prehistoric and historical remains: from rock engravings to castles up to the palaces of the urban centers and numerous sanctuaries that stand symbolically in a sea of vineyards. The viticulture in this valley was a vital economic resource and has played a key role in preserving the landscape. The territory of the Wine and Dine in Valtellina has been divided into five zones corresponding to the geographical and historical references: the countryside of Chiavenna (Chiavenna and surroundings), the Terziere di Sotto (Morbegno and surroundings), the Middle Terziere (Sondrio and surroundings), the Terziere Sopra (Tirano and surroundings) and the Magnifica Terra (Bormio and surroundings). Very interesting and evocative are the circuits between the terraced vineyards on the heretical side of the Valtellina, which can be traveled by car, bike or on foot. They correspond to as many production areas of Valtellina Superiore DOCG wine. It ranges from Maroggia, in the municipality of Berbenno, the Sassella, between the towns of Andevenno and Sondrio; from Grumello, in the North-East of Sondrio, in Hell, between the towns of Poggirenti and Chiuro, surely the most inaccessible area. Between the town of Chiuro and Teglio to the trail leads Valgella. In the vicinity of the town of Tirano is the last of the identified circuits to Baruffini.
