Panza's many wineries

Panza is home to numerous wineries - cantine - ranging from "Casa D'Ambra" who produce half a million
bottles a year through to small family concerns who bottle a fraction of that amount, just for friends and relatives.

Over the final weekend of September 2008, during the grape harvest, their Pro Loco (literally, 'for the place')
organised a series of tours - Andar per Cantine - and we were lucky enough to be on one of the first,
an interesting opportunity to observe and compare modern and traditional methods, and sample the results!
