Intro

The northernmost rice field in the world lies between Ascona and Locarno. It is worth a visit to the operator Terreni alla Maggia.

The Loto rice variety has been cultivated on the headland between Ascona and Locarno since 1997. The gravelly, sandy and partially loamy wet land of the Maggia provides ideal conditions. Care to see it for yourself? Visitors are introduced to the secrets of rice cultivation on site, after which they are tempted by a subtle risotto accompanied by a local Merlot. The culmination of the experience is a single malt whisky, also produced on site.
