Every wine produced in the region has an interesting tale of its intimate origin and meticulous production, but the region also prizes itself with excellent fruit brandies and liqueurs. Nurtured orchards and shrubs of the area are generous with prime pears, plums, peaches, oranges, cherries, blueberries, figs and carob, so their fruit is being used in well-known and valued drinks. However, the famed Marasca sour cherry, first used for brandies in the 16th century by the local Dominicans, is the most beloved fruit of all and a base for Maraschino, "the king of liqueurs" exported to almost every country in the world!
