Dolceacqua

“Where the olive tree is embraced by the vine”

In the province of Imperia, Monet’s enchanted village

In the province of Imperia, where the sea gives way to the rugged territories of the Alps, there is a gentle middle land, a crossing point, a meeting spot of several climates and cultures.

Dolceacqua is located in Val Nervia, inland from Imperia. This village, beautiful and rich in history, gathers rural architecture and refined palaces, a testimony of its 17th-century heyday. Monet was so fascinated by Dolceacqua that he painted its landscape in 1884 and reported in his writings: “The place is superb, there is a bridge that is a jewel of lightness”.

The hinterland of Western Liguria is a unique territory “where the olive tree is embraced by the vine”, as Fabrizio De Andrè sang (Il Sogno di Maria). It presents many small villages, each one with its own character, personality and hidden glimpses. Atmospheres that swell with mimosa, broom and rosemary framing the rocks, olive trees and vines. Atmospheres that can be found in a calm glass of Dolceacqua.

All of Maixei’s production areas are distributed along the steep slopes of Western Liguria that encircle these villages, from Val Nervia to Val Verbone. These are excellent lands for the development of vines: sheltered to the north by the meeting of two mountain ranges, the Maritime Alps and the Apennines, and mitigated to the south by the Ligurian Sea, which acts as a heat accumulator.
