Food and wine-themed excursions on Lake Garda
Among the most popular experiences on Lake Garda, the food and wine themed excursions.
The great food and wine heritage are a piece of fundamental importance during your holiday on Lake Garda.
The mild climate and the biodiversity of the flora have made the shores of the lake a fertile territory for vines and olive groves. Among the typical products of excellence, the Garda extra virgin olive oil and the great wine labels stand out.
Visits and tastings in the production area are the best way to discover these precious products.
In particular, as regards wine, the wine-growing areas are divided into different productions: Lugana, Custoza, Bardolino and Valpolicella.
In any period of the year, excursions and tastings can be organized with tailor-made proposals. Including private transfer, lunches or dinners.
