Trentino spring food and wine events will certainly whet your appetite

One swallow does not make a summer, but many tasty events do!

SPRING 2020 - Spring is coming and brings with it unique flavours and tempting aromas. In Trentino, spring is a season full of food and wine events focused on the territory and its delicacies. These are unmissable occasions.

It is blossom-scented, like the blossoms of the apple orchards that have made Val di Non famous, where the gentle hilly landscape offers an explosion of white flowers, a prelude to a new harvest of juicy, fragrant apples. Spring also brings to mind Nosiola, a grape variety used to produce Vino Santo (literally “Holy Wine”), which, after the grapes are skilfully raisined during the autumn and winter, is tasted at Easter.

It is the right season to rediscover excellent products in events focused on wines, craft beers and the rich culinary tradition of the territory.

Chocomusic
