Reawaken your taste buds this spring with our food and wine events

One swallow does not a summer make, nor a spring for that matter, but a series of food & wine events in Trentino this spring definitely will!

Spring is around the corner and, besides changing the weather and transforming the landscape with its fresh scents and colours, it brings an array of unique aromas and tastes to the table. Springtime in Trentino is a season characterised by special food and wine events and festivals, centred around the local territory and its delicacies, that simply cannot be missed.

In Trentino, springtime means carefree strolls in the sunshine, maybe along the banks of Lake Garda, and sudden and spectacular blooms of flowers. An example are the famous apple orchards of the Val di Non, where the gentle hilly landscape is coated in an explosion of white apple blossoms, a prelude to the following autumn’s harvest of fragrant juicy fruit. Springtime is also associated to Nosiola, the vines from which Vino Santo is produced and which, after the skilful process of grape-drying, can be tasted at Easter. Spring, a season which in Trentino represents a unique opportunity for rediscovering outstanding products through a series of events dedicated to wines, craft beers and the rich culinary tradition of this territory.

DiVinNosiola

The “DiVinNosiola” event takes place throughout the month of April 2019 in various locations across the Valle dei Laghi and in Trento city. This event allows visitors to discover the cultural and natural heritage of this valley and, above all, the food and wine tradition which is linked in a special way to the production of the Vino Santo, or “Holy Wine” of Trentino, which represents the unique encounter between the fruits of this land and the skills of its inhabitants.
