Tourists worldwide choose Trentino as a holiday destination as they are fascinated by the Lake Garda and its amazing natural surroundings. Very rarely they consider the possibility of enriching their experience with some food travelling or a wine tasting tour: the gem of Lake Garda shines so brightly for the tourists visiting Trentino, that many of them spend their entire holiday on the shores of the Lake.
The bravest – e.g. bike and trekking lovers – cycle along Sarca river in the enchanting Valle dei Laghi, or walk up to the Segonzano Pyramides in Val di Cembra, or maybe visite the castles of Vallagarina. But when it comes to dinner or aperitif, many tourist go back to the lake and simply have a spritz or a pizza. A pity, because Trentino has a lot to offer when it comes to food and wine: a wide range of typical produces such as juicy fruits and vegetables, tasteful cheeses and sausages, fresh fish, and other precious ingredients for the local cuisine, such as medicinal herbs or organic saffron that we love to combine with excellent wines during our food tours.
At Schatzitaly we design bespoke culinary experiences for discerning food travelers and wine tasting tours for curious wine lovers. An example? Last March we received the following request from Pål from Norway:
“We are a group of 10 people from Norway […] We Are interested in a wine tour, cuisine and also Italian food. […] Perhaps good information for you is that we are from 54 -70 , we are however all young in our mind and in fairly good shape😊”.
Many needs and requests to pay attention to but Trentino had all the answers we needed: the excellent red wine Marzemino of Vallagarina, the sweet Vino Santo from Valle dei Laghi, the fragrant Müller Thurgau in the Cembra Valley and of course the savory dishes of the local cuisine gave us the chance to offer Pål and his friends a tailor-made food tour and wine tasting during their vacations in Italy.
If you are keen on food travel or love wine tours like Pål and his friends, do not hesitate to contact us: we would be glad to design your own bespoke food and wine experience in Trentino.
