See you for an aperitif!

A lakeside aperitif, perhaps at sunset, with a glass of Trentodoc spumante. Why not give it a try?

You’ve been at the lake all day - maybe windsurfing, or just lying in the sun with a good book and your favourite music. However you spent your day, it doesn’t matter. What counts, is that at the end of the afternoon you will meet your friends for a refreshing aperitif, lit by the last rays of sunlight as sunset approaches.

What are you going to choose today? The elegant bubbles of Trentodoc, which caress your palate, or a cold craft beer - better yet, a local one? You can accompany your glass or mug with typical cheeses of Trentino and tasty zero-kilometre cold meats.

There are so many places in Trentino where you can find an excellent aperitif. Here are a few that we have chosen for you!
