Festa dell'Uva e del Vino
The traditional Bardolino “Festa dell'Uva e del Vino” (Grape and Wine Festival) is an event with a long tradition. The annual grape harvest and the consequnet wine-making of Bardolino wine, one of the most popular wines of the Lake Garda, represent the right moment to organize the most important celebration of the town. Wine tastings and local dishes attract enthusiasts and professionals of the wine world, who have the opportunity 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 and the 70% of its total production is exported. Out of the 16 towns which 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.
