Chestnut Festivals, a delicious bite into autumn

Woodland walks, tastings and artisan workshops

The fragrant smell of roasted chestnuts is simply inimitable. Hot, charcoaled and aromatic, a whiff of these delicious golden nuggets in a pod is synonymous of the beginning of the colder season. Autumn is the best time to enjoy roasted chestnuts, best paired with a glass of young wine or must, after a stroll through the centuries-old chestnut woods or at the local markets, where you can find all sort of chestnut-based products. Town squares and galleries come to life with artisans’ stalls and restaurants create autumn-inspired menus with one big protagonist on the table: the chestnut.

Trentino hosts many great festivals dedicated to this earthy fruit. Castione di Brentonico, in Parco Naturale del Monte Baldo, celebrates the Marroni di Castione, a top-quality produce with inimitable flavour, while in Valsugana you can join in the celebrations in Roncegno and San Nicolò.
