DOC area (also Cinque Terre Sciacchetrà) for white wine in the Italian region of Liguria. It is named after about 12 kilometres of climate-favoured coastal strip of the Italian Riviera between Punta Mesco and Punta di Montenero on the Gulf of Genoa and means "Five Lands" or "Five Villages". These are the municipalities of Monterosso al Mare, Riomaggiore (with the three subzones Costa de Sera, Costa de Campu and Costa da Posa), Vernazza and the Tramonti Piassa and Tramonti di Campiglia in the province of La Spezia, which belong to the area of the capital La Spezia. The region is protected as a national park and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
