Abruzzo

Map of Abruzzo

Along the Adriatic on the east coast of Italy, Abruzzo (Abruzzi) fills the market basket with carrots, potatoes, spinach, peppers, tomatoes, figs and plums. There is a significant amount of olive and table grape farming, but somewhat less wine production than you might expect. This sleepy region with abandoned villages may surprise with castles, ski resorts and sandy beaches.

The main olive oil producing areas of Abruzzo are the Valli del Tordino e del Vomano, Valle del Tavo, Chietino, and Conca di Sulmona. These areas are mainly valleys rising up from the Adriatic into the rugged mountains of the region.
