Awaken your palate with spring taste events
A swallow does not make spring, but many events dedicated to Trentino foods and wines do!
SPRING 2024 - Spring is knocking, bringing to the table new flavours and aromas, in addition to weather changes and new landscapes enhanced by renewed shapes and colours... Spring in Trentino is a season of special food and wine events dedicated to the territory and its delicacies.
In Trentino, spring means walking in the sun, perhaps along the shores of Lake Garda, and spectacular blooms. One among many, the apple orchards that give fame to Val di Non, whose gentle hilly landscape features an explosion of white flowers, a prelude to a new harvest of juicy and fragrant fruits. Spring is also synonymous with Nosiola, the vine which gives life to Vino Santo which is best enjoyed at Easter time, after a skilful grape drying process In Trentino, the spring season offers an opportunity to rediscover excellent products through events dedicated to wines, craft beers and the rich local culinary traditions.
