Top Tips: Lifestyle & Shopping

WESTERN DOLOMITES

Profumo di Campiglio, Madonna di Campiglio

There are no industrial processes behind the perfumes made at Profumo di Campiglio. The work is slow and predominantly manual – and inspired by the stupendous scenery outside the front door.

Miele d’Autore, Fai della Paganella 

A great way to get a taste the mountains is to eat its honey. Miele d’Autore is a small bee-keeping company whose year revolves around the flowering seasons of Trentino plants, including sweet chestnut, linden and the wild flowers of alpine pastures.

Enoteca Malanotti, Croviana

Over lunch in one of our mountain huts you may already have discovered Trentino’s superb wines. Now’s the time to learn more, courtesy of one of our leading wine merchants.

EASTERN DOLOMITES

Bancher dal 1924, San Martino

Bancher is your one-stop souvenir shop. A fixture in central San Martino, it sells everything from traditional mountain clothing to locally made toys, wines and grappas.

L’Ones, Panchia

Based in a restored, 18th century barn, this artisan distiller forages for plants, seeds and flowers in the mountains around Panchia to produce grappas and herbal teas. Look out for his blueberry grappa and toasted lupin tea.

Eder – Officina Naturale, Moena 

Looking to sample a whole range of Trentino produce and flavours? Eder is the place to go. Everything from wine to honey is here – as well as grappa, cosmetics and even mustard.

TRENTO - MONTE BONDONE and FOLGARIA

La Salumeria Belli, Sopramonte

If you want to take some salami, speck or bresaola home with you, then a visit to La Salumeria Belli in Sopramonte is a must. There’s been a butcher’s shop here since 1800, and over six generations the Belli family have fine-tuned their recipes to create a range of exceptional mountain meats.

Navarini Rame, Ravina

On the outskirts of Trento, this is a real find: a copper museum-cum-shop whose products have found their way to many top-notch restaurants around the world (including Rana in New York). Its robust, elegant copper pots are a must for any serious foodie’s kitchen.

Caseificio dell'Alpe Cimbra

One of the finest products of the mountains around Folgaria is Vezzena cheese, and this dairy in the village of Lavarone is the place to buy it. Once the favourite of the Emperor Franz Josef of Austria, it can be matured for up to two years, and will grace any cheeseboard.
