The finest aperitifs in the city

Trentodoc, the undeniable protagonist when it comes to classy aperitifs

Elegant and stylish establishments where you can taste a glass of Trento Doc, a world class sparkling wine, from the high mountain peaks of the Dolomites to the historic enclaves and the modern hubs of Trento. The prestigious appellation, attributed exclusively to a sparkling wine, was in fact originated in Trento. A relatively young player in the industry, Trento Doc was launched in 1993 and is, today, a worldwide leader in the “classic method” of winemaking, producing a classy sparkling wine that has become not only a respected name but an important symbol for the region.
