The Cinque Terre Wine has been valued since ancient times. During the excavations, amphorae with the inscription Cornelia were found in Pompeii. The name comes from the Gens Cornelia family who owned the Corniglia estate and who produced the renowned wine.
The terraced vineyards are steep and difficult to manage. Sometimes the terraces are so narrow that there is only room for two or three vines. Again and again, the terraced dry stone walls have to be reattached with the natural stones. Vehicles do not come to the winegrowers, so the work is associated with a lot of strength and skill.
