The Bine

The reserve between Calvatone and Acquanegra on Chiese

The `Bine` Oriented Natural Riserve

It is on the right bank of the river between the municipal district of Calvatone and Acquanegra on the river Chiese. It covers an area of about 121 hectars and it is what remains of an ancient meander that was diverted and isolated from the river. The position and the high quantity of water under the soil has favoured a flourishing vegetation and a great variety of birds.
