Autumn in Garda Trentino is a succession of tasty events – and Mese del Gusto is the name that brings them all together.
Recipes made with the purple potatoes of the Ledro Valley; desserts created with Bleggio walnuts (one of Garda Trentino’s Presidio Slow Food award-winners) or made with chestnut flour or indeed the chestnuts from around Drena, Tenno and Nago. Glasses of Cabernet, Marzemino, Merlot or Vino Santo Trentino DOC from the Valle dei Laghi to go with traditional dishes; or slices of carne salada with a drizzle of Garda Trentino DOP olive oil. All to be tasted at the stalls of food and wine festivals, seated on benches at village festivals, amidst conversation and concerts, or at the tables of traditional restaurants looking out on the lakes (Garda, Ledro... and more besides) or mountains. Enjoy the carefree atmosphere of lakeside villages, the rural ambience of the medieval villages in the hinterland and the hospitality of the mountain folk.
