Located next to Cinque Terre DOC, the Colline di Levanto DOC has very similar soil and climate, creating a similar wine to its neighboring wine region.
Colline di Levanto is an Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC) located in Liguria that produces both red and white wines.
The seaside resort Levanto, after which the DOC is named, is the next commune up from Monterosso al Mare, the most northerly of the five villages of Cinque Terre. The two are separated only by the Mesco promontory, a robust headland which juts out into the Ligurian Sea and marks the northern end of the Cinque Terre National Park.
