The Mangialonga is the most anticipated wine and food event, but also the one most relative to the territory, its products and its actors.
After having initially presented itineraries of different lengths on the Monte San Giorgio and, during the last three editions, having
concentrated on the area that develops between Mendrisio and Balerna, the group of friends who work on the basis of volunteering under the name Vineria dei Mir, has chosen for this year a new route that winds almost entirely in the territory of Stabio.
The event will start at the Secondary Schools of Stabio, where the participants will begin their walk divided into groups of eighty people.
The food and wine walk will take participants to discover the area that is close to the border and to go through a total route of 11 km which is largely developed on paths and mule tracks, with a minimum difference in level and therefore of easy travel.
There will be a total of 11 stops, including four wineries and a brewery. It should also be noted that more than 50% of the stops include also a gastronomic offer for vegetarians.
Among the novelties of the 2019 edition, welcomed with great enthusiasm by the City of Stabio, we point out the presence of new producers (Swiss Lachs, Grotto Santa Margherita, Daniele Sulmoni, Rapelli, Cantina Agriloro, Cantina Luigina, Cantina Monticello, Cantina Ferrari, Birrificio San Martino), various collaborations with regional sports clubs and a further focus on sustainability, also thanks to the use of bio-compostable material.
The number of participants, as always, is limited to 2,000 and the presale will open on 20 March on the website www.vineriadeimir.ch.
The price has been fixed at Chf 60.- for adults, Chf 40.- for children from 10 to 17 years and is free for children up to 9 years old.
years. The price includes rail transport from all stations in Ticino to Stabio and back.
The event will take place in all weather conditions, including rain and bad weather.
