Taste the difference
Climate, tradition, authenticity, rigour: these are just some of the reasons why Trentino’s produce is so varied, and delicious
It’s the variety that strikes you first. Organic fruit and veg, fine wines, craft beer, olive oil, pasta, fresh fish, venison, beef, and several unique kinds of cheese: we harvest or make them all in Trentino.
Trentino is one of Europe’s natural frontiers, and its rich mix of traditions, terrain and microclimates explains the diversity of our food culture. There’s a modern rigour to what we do, too – establishing DOP status for many of our products, controlling quality, and ensuring both the purity and authenticity of the raw ingredients. As a result, you’ll find every valley and lake shore has its signature products, and its food heroes, too – whether they’re artisan cheesemakers, or bigger companies committed to serving international markets.
Of course, none of this would matter if our food, wine and beer didn’t taste good. But it does. So make sure eat local when you get here: sampling the produce that comes from your immediate surroundings, and tasting the mountains as well as walking, biking and climbing them.
