Bardolino Wine Festival
The Grape and Wine Festival in Bardolino is a highlight every year
The traditional Bardolino “Festa dell'Uva e del Vino” (Grape and Wine Festival) enjoys a long tradition. The annual grape harvest and the following production of Bardolino wine, one of the most popular wines of the Lake Garda region, represent the right moment to organize the most important celebration of the town. Wine tastings and local food attract enthusiasts and professionals of the wine world, who have the chance to take part in events, conferences and meetings about wine. Furthermore, exhibitions and concerts add extra fun for everybody.
Bardolino wine, in all its typologies, is famous not only in Lake Garda and in Italy, but also all around the world. Indeed, it’s a unique red wine produced from local grape varieties, about 70% of which is exported.
Out of the 16 towns that have been awarded the DOC quality assurance label, only 6 are allowed to call their wines Bardolino Classico DOC and thus represent the deep-rooted tradition of wine production: Bardolino, Garda, Lazise, Affi, Costermano and Cavaion Veronese. Bardolino wine is largely produced from the Corvina Veronese grape variety. It has a light ruby red colour that tends to garnet red after maturation. Its fragrance is vinous, but delicate; due to its harmonious, fine and extra dry taste, this wine matches with many different dishes.
This year, the Wine Festival takes place from 29 September to 3 October 2022.
