Castelvetro di Modena is located in the heart of Emilia Romagna, in the foothills of the Apenines, near Maranello (land of the legendary Ferrari), between Modena (Cathedral, Torre Civica and Piazza Grande di Modena UNESCO World Heritage) and Bologna.
In ancient times Castelvetro was an Etruscan settlement, but around 150 B.C., the Roman legions led to the establishment of a military garrison among the hills, a CASTRUM (military camp). The city name of Castelvetro comes from the Latin CASTRUM VETUS (ancient camp).
The area of Castelvetro boasts many merits and attractions in terms of scenery, culture and good food and wine, coupled with sustainable policies, in order to promote development without detrimental effects on the environment.
Since 1994, thanks to the deep wine vocation of its territory, Castelvetro is member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION CITTÀ DEL VINO (Cities of Wine). In 2003, Italian Touring Club awarded Castelvetro with the BANDIERA ARANCIONE (Orange Flag), a quality label for turism. In 2008 the registration of EMAS project was completed. Furthermore, it has been registered in the list of the Municipalities based mainly on a tourist economy by the region Emilia Romagna.
