Food and Wine Holidays

Spending your holidays in the Italian lakes means finding the perfect combination of landscapes, culture, sunny weather and outdoor activities. What could make your holiday break even more special? If you’d like to taste local wines and celebrate your days off, Lake Garda offers a plethora of delicious local wines and specialties to be tried out. With this short break on Garda Lake including local wine tasting you will have the proof that, in Italy, culture does not only refer to architecture or history, but to food and wine as well.

If you want to taste some of the best wines in the world, with this great and cheap deal to Lake Garda we offer you one wine tasting in a local cellar. You will learn all the secrets of local wine producers and what are the most refined varieties born on the coasts of Lake Garda. Upon your arrival, you will also receive a complimentary bottle of wine to start appreciating the local varieties.

This specialties tasting is not finishing. Lake Garda is popular all over the world for its fine olive oil too. It doesn’t happen every day to be in one of the most renowned places for the “golden liquid” in Italy and having the opportunity of trying it. We are sure after this experience you will understand why Italian food is so good and why olive oil is one of its essential pillars.

If you mostly know Limoncello as a typical southern Italy specialty, you might find it surprising to learn that Lake Garda has its own variety. During this holiday to Lake Garda, you will have the opportunity of visiting a local lemon house, or “Limonaia” in Italian, and learn how, back to the 13th century, local monks started to grow lemons and produce the perfumed liqueur. It has become a tradition since then and one of the prides of Lake Garda, particularly of the region of it where most lemon groves are located: the renowned “Riviera dei Limoni”. The lemon house you will visit is “Pra de la Fam”, located in Tignale.

Lake Garda trips, besides combining food and wine traditions with culture and sunshine, can be enjoyed even more if you spend your time in a quiet and friendly accommodation.
