Trento and the Piana Rotaliana
The Piana Rotaliana has been defined by Cesare Battisti as “the most beautiful vineyard in Europe”. Here is where Teroldego, the prince of Trentino’s wines is produced. In spring, its alluvial soils provide a true delicacy: the white asparagus, whose quality in the municipality of Zambana is the guaranteed by the De.Co denomination. Piana Rotaliana is also home to the Foundation E. Mach – the Agricultural Institute of San Michele and the Museum of Uses and Customs of the Trentino People, located in San Michele. It tells the story of the local population through the historic analysis of the daily life of farmers, herdsmen and artisans, while the Mach Foundation conducts research, education and training for the agricultural and food industries. Trento and the Piana Rotaliana. Heading south, we encounter Trento. The vine-clad hills that surround the capital define the landscape and make it the cradle for the production of sparkling wine Trentodoc. Monte Bondone, the mountain of the city, is a treasure of Alpine flavours, famous for its sausages amongst which Lucanica, made of pork and lard is a classic ingredient of many signature dishes. Amongst these sausages, those produced with meat from pigs reared exclusively in Trentino can bear the Slow Food mark. The city is also home to the Provincial Wine House of Trentino in Palazzo Roccabruna, a true reference point for discovering the gastronomic world of Trentino and to taste all types of wines produced in the area, accompanied by a selection of the most representative productions.
