Typical restaurants – "The most beautiful part of the world smiles at me here" - that's what Virgil sung and it's also the inscription in one of the cellar vaults hewn into rock behind the village of Mendrisio, where the old Grotto Bundi can be found. A culinary institution where wonderful wines, cheese and sausages – made to time-honoured recipes and stored traditionally – can be tried.
Polenta cooked in a ceramic stove is a specialty of Grotto Bundi.
Wineculture – In the gentle hills of the Mendrisiotto region and along the slopes
of Monte San Giorgio and Monte Generoso stretch three circular
walks, marked with information panels. Along them, visitors can
explore the area and its more than 300 hectares of vineyards;
learn about the local winegrowing and winemaking traditions
and experience the local history and culture.
