The wine estates of Garda Trentino nestle on sunny, south-facing slopes, protected by the high mountains to the north. This is where the mild climate for winegrowing is at its finest: both international and numerous indigenous grape varieties appreciate the excellent location and have flourished in Garda Trentino for centuries.
What better way to accompany a lake fish than a glass of Nosiola white? Or how about a full-bodied Cabernet, Marzemino or Merlot paired with carne salada in the evening? These are just a few of the many DOC wines that can be tasted at wineries, wine merchants, restaurants and trattorie.
In addition to these well-known grape varieties, in recent times special attention has been paid to the Schiava and Lagrein varieties, which form the basis for contemporary, fruity rosé wines, ideal for combining with pasta dishes or other starters. These fresh rosé wines can also be served slightly more chilled in the warmer months – all in keeping with the aperitivo ambience.
A true gem and the pride of the entire wine industry is Trentodoc, whose fine, vigorous perlage has seen it rise to a leading position among sparkling wines of international standing. Whether for making a toast or served alongside a superior fish or vegetable dish, Trentodoc always makes a good impression and is a delight for connoisseurs and wine-lovers alike.
And, if the meal is coming to an end, the Vino Santo Trentino DOC is the perfect accompaniment for fine cheese courses and desserts.
