OF TICINO'S LOCAL DELICACIES.
Delicious cuisine with
a large helping of tradition.
Estate & Esplanade stands for tradition and culinary delights. Switzerland's sunny southern canton is known for its delicious food and drink. The authentic, rustic grottos, which usually consist of a kitchen and a large garden, showcase the region's fantastic local cuisine. Paired with a white or red Merlot, pressed and bottled in Ticino, of course! Aromatic cheese, exquisite prosciutto and nocino liqueur, which is made of walnuts from the region, are true local delicacies. A fun tip: take a stroll through the vineyards and enjoy the spectacular views. You will pass by forests of chestnut trees that offer a welcome bit of shade.
WATCH AS IT GROWS.
ANYONE WHO TRULY LOVES TICINO

TYPICAL TICINO –
EAT, DRINK AND LAUGH.
When you think of Ticino, you automatically think of its legendary hospitality and traditional grottos. Some know them from holidays, others know them as locals well into the valleys. The gourmet experience ranges from typical regional cuisine all the way to fresh products from the surrounding Alps. But all grottos have one thing in common: they are magical places, nestled into the natural landscape, and have often been passed down from generation to generation. One unique example – and our insider tip – is Ristorante Da Enzo in Ponte Brolla at the entrance of Valle Maggia. Take the time to sample the local cuisine of Ticino. Talk to the locals and let them show you and tell you all about their favourite hidden spots.
