In addition to the hiking trails along many dry stone walls and along the highest vines in Ticino, the Brontallers were able to dig up a new attraction. Because Brontallo, the first village in the side valley, is a sun terrace, it is considered life-friendly. The old communal oven, which was used until the 20th century, tells the story of the tasty bread made from the sun-nourished wheat that was ground into flour in the neighboring mill by the stream.

The village of Brontallo consists of a group of old houses - the oldest dating back to the 16th century - nestled around a small village square. In this place in the past the community meetings took place.
The vineyards in Brontallo are really amazing. They are the highest in the canton of Ticino. There are still many dry stone walls and pergola constructions recently repaired. Cabernet Jura and Americana grapes are grown here, no Merlot due to the altitude. Normally grapes do not ripen at such a height at all. However, because of the strong tanning and the rock wall, which stores a lot of heat and then releases it again, here are cultivated vines, which are later pressed to the red wine Pioda Rossa.
