The second edition of “Vulturismo”, an event promoted by Apt and Pro Loco Barile - reports the Thalia Tourist Study Center - kicks off the autumn tourism season mainly characterized by food and wine itineraries. With its range of colors, suggestions, our territory also offers delicious fruits to taste. On all mushrooms and chestnuts. But autumn is above all the harvest month, the ideal time to indulge in some mini-breaks focusing on the paths of good food and festivals dedicated to the grape harvest. Each wine area in the region has a wide range of events of this type, so you are spoiled for choice. Furthermore, food and wine tourism in our country is no longer a novelty and many wine districts have now specialized in niche tourist offers.The harvest - underlines Arturo Giglio, secretary of CS Thalia - as happens in many areas of the country can be seen not only as a tourist product capable of extending the season of agritourism structures and inland areas, but also as a marketing tool and lever for market the wine products of our small producers who record enormous margins of appreciation. The simplest example - he continues - is food and wine tourism, a new way of experiencing a territory by looking for authentic flavors, places and traditions. In this context, the phenomenon of more or less short trips explodes, of thematic weekends linked to guided tours or built directly by the people who decide to dedicate time and money to them.At the table, on the other hand, the absolute prince is the cardoncello mushroom. In agritourisms, in addition to the classic combination with strascinati or manate, it is cooked in many recipes including enriching the flavor of the lamb of the Dolomites as happens at the Molino della Contessa d Castelmezzano which offers an entire menu on mushrooms. Autumn is ideal for rediscovering the historic centers and the most beautiful villages, letting yourself be pampered in accommodation facilities that create the atmosphere of warm hospitality and feed emotions. And among the innovative cases reported by the Thalia Tourist Study Center in Brienza La Voce del Fiume, which is a Bed & Breakfast set between stone and luxury, almost dug into the rock of a castle, which has made excellence its strong point. The Brugentino village in autumn offers new sensations. Involving the activities and local companies spread across our territory for us - explains Rocchina Adobbato who, more than the owner, is the "hostess" animator of activities and attentive to hospitality details - is culture because we believe that a true traveler finds it interesting to be know the past, present and future of the destination you visit. Who travels, often, he wants to know the territory also through the local cuisine and food and wine, which is why we are committed to promoting the typical products of our territory also through traditional local dishes. Hence a simple and effective action such as offering a typical autumn product from the “Lucanian basket” to be placed in the guest's picnic basket.
