Finale: home of the good life
The Finale area is also proposed a favourite destination for lovers of good food and good wine: its typical products are the pride of local cuisine and can also be purchased at many local shops.

Among the wines, D.O.C. Vermentino, Pigato, Rossese stand out, and the two I.G.T granaccia and Lumassina. Beer is also produced in local breweries.

The Gentile and Taggiasca olive groves produce an excellent extra virgin quality, just like that of the historic Uliveto Varigotti (Dominic Ruffino). The olive tree plantations central to this well-tended area and are surrounded by kilometers of stone walls.

Among the products of the Finale area, there is also the bitter orange (Citrus myrtifolia). The juice extracted from this fruit is used to produce the typical Ligurian drink: Chinotto which is slightly bitter in taste but at the same time fresh and delicate.

An important local delicacy is the honey made by Benedictine monks at the Monastery of Finalpia, a real  sanctuary for bee-keeping and the production of honey and indeed many other healthcare products.
