Event > Bardolino Grape and wine festival

BARDOLINO GRAPE AND WINE FESTIVAL The event is entirely dedicated to the “Vino Bardolino Classico  D.O.C.”  which can be tasted at the appositive stands set up by the various associations of Bardolino. The Grape and Wine Festival first took place in 1929 and over the years the various Shire Administrations that have followed, have made this event a must that characterizes every year the start of autumn.
During the ‘70s, with the evolving of the local economy, the event was transformed from primarily agricultural to touristic and with international connotations.  For this reason with the need for more space, the event was moved to the lake promenade, being the most suitable place to host it.
The event is entirely dedicated to the “Vino Bardolino Classico  D.O.C.”  which can be tasted at the appositive stands set up by the various associations of Bardolino.
This administration, in addition to keeping the traditions alive, want to bring a breath of modernisation to this Fest which is the most renowned and the one with the highest number of attendees, national and international, bringing an important inducement to the hotels.
This was all made possible by bringing services and fittings to the town worthy of praise.  The official opening takes place with the presence of the local authorities, the children riding in a cart dressed as farmers, accompanied by the folkloristic choir of the Rocca of Garda.
For five days the numerous guests that every year visit the Fest can taste typical dishes accompanied by good wine at the stands of the various local associations present.  Important to note that we were the first in our area to introduce biodegradable/compostable tableware boasting the GREEN FEST brand, even though incurring higher costs. It’s the Administration’s intent to continue with this initiative in the following years in order that the use of bio materials becomes not the exception but the rule.
To latch on to tradition we have re-established at the entrance of the Fest two large arches at Villa Delle Rose and the other in proximity of Punta Cornicello. Music is the highlight every evening with concerts and various musical entertainment held at the port, the main square and the Carrara Bottagisio Park.
On Sunday evening it is the musical fireworks held directly on the lake’s water that attract thousands of people, making this Fest a must!
