Garda con Gusto - Gourmet Experience 2-4 November 2018
A Weekend to savour!
Garda con Gusto is the unmissable wine and food event on Lake Garda in Trentino.
A truly Gourmet Experience! This 4th edition of Garda con Gusto is full of fresh initiatives. New approaches to wine and cuisine that enhance the produce from Garda Trentino.
The region’s products will be interpreted and their stories told by the local producers, chefs and restaurateurs, together with new internationally acclaimed starred chefs, food bloggers, wine and food journalists, sommeliers and by the region itself, which can be visited and enjoyed over the entire weekend.
For a holiday to be different from the other, the Garda Trentino offers a perfect combination of sport and wellbeing, fine food, wine and culture, to regenerate body and mind without forgetting the pleasures of relaxation. But the true spectacle is nature itself: the blue of the lake with its long beaches of white pebbles, the green expanses crowned by encircling mountains.
Nature and sport: an outdoor training ground. Midway between the mountains and the lake, Garda Trentino offers natural amenities of the highest order for all kinds of outdoor sports and is known in Europe as a prime destination for active holidays year round thanks to the mildness of its climate.
From sailing to mountain biking, windsurfing, climbing, canyoning, trekking, the Upper Garda offers myriad opportunities for a healthy active lifestyle.
A tradition of excellence in food and wine. The finer flavours of the lake and the more robust flavours of the mountains come together in the traditional recipes of Garda Trentino, where the main ingredients are fresh water fish, carne salada, the broccoli of Torbole, a Slow Food presidium, the plums of Dro (DOP), the sweet chestnuts of Drena, Campi and Nago, to name but a few. Garda Trentino DOP extra virgin olive oil and our excellent range of wines bring out the flavours of local specialities and, last but not least, apple strudel and fruit cake are the perfect accompaniment to Vino Santo, a Slow Food presidium, produced with our own local Nosiola grapes.
Wellbeing and entertainment for all the family: Wellness is real culture in Garda Trentino. There is sport, culture, shopping and wellness to fill the days, in the evenings the visitor can enjoy the restaurants, “trattorias”, traditional pubs and lounge bars or the wide range of events for young and old which take place all year round in different parts of the area.
