After the fall of the Western Roman Empire, the conservation of Piacenza viticulture was guaranteed by the work of the Monks of San Colombano who made the famous monastery of Bobbio founded by Saint a monastic centre of primary importance for the whole of the Middle Ages. Since then and up to the present day the cultivation of the vine and the production of wine has continued without stopping and with remarkable results throughout the territory of Piacenza and its province.
