Rovereto and Vallagarina
Vallagarina is an area with a strong dedication to viticulture, especially regarding the red wine Marzemino that’s found growing alongside the Adige river from the southern borders of Trentino to the doors of the Province’s capital.
Here the vineyards are interspersed with villages and ancient historical castles, while the river is protected by picturesque mountain plateaus. Overlooking Lake Garda to the west, Monte Baldo has a unique natural flora, influenced by a Mediterranean climate. This wealth from nature generates milk and a unique cheese named Nostrano Monte Baldo. The production of selected large chestnuts in the area of Castione di Brentonico is also noteworthy.
Even Val di Gresta is blessed with the Vallagarina 14 gentle climate of Lake Garda: this valley, affectionately called the Valley of the Gardens has given rise to the organic production of vegetables over the last thirty years, with valuable organoleptic properties. Returning to the main valley and going past Rovereto (renowned for the special processing of horsemeat), once you reach Castel Beseno we can go back to Folgaria, Lavarone and Luserna. Here the pastures produce a highquality milk and Vezzena, a cheese with a long history, loved by Emperor Franz Joseph. It retains unique flavours and aromas that recall the floral and herbaceous mountain meadows.
