Gourmet tours

You can discover Trentino in a different way through the seven existing “WINE AND FLAVOURS ROUTES”, following geographical and gourmet itineraries.

The “TRENTO – Council City WINE AND FLAVOURS ROUTE”, with its vine-covered hills running alongside the Adige River, with apple orchards, woods and unusual plants such as the Romagnano asparagus and small Sardagna fruits, offering a gentle landscape in which to enjoy Trento D.O.C. classic method Spumante; top quality fizz which has made Trentino the elite area for National Spumante.

The Rotaliana Plane stretches around the north of Trento, forming an inlet of alluvial origin among the most fertile in the territory, along which the “Rotaliana Plane Wine and Flavours Route” snakes. The Adige River coasts it all along and, as Goethe noted in his famous “Italian Journey”, takes a “tranquil route”, surrounded by slopes of “vine-hung hills, maize, mulberries, apples, pears, quince, and walnuts”: a veritable garden in the midst of the mountains!
Towns such as Mezzocorona and Mezzolombardo still carry in their names the characteristics of lands divided between the Tyrol Counts and the Trentino Bishop Princes, although today they are united by the area’s representative product: Teroldego rotaliano D.O.C., a vigorous red wine, whose perfumed, full-bodied notes retain the historical memory of this area. Another renowned product of this area is Zambana asparagus.
Also in San Michele all’Adige is the Museum of Uses and Customs of the Trentino People, which gathers, through accurate ethnographic collections, the ancient and more recent memories of the Trentino population.
In north-west Trentino the apple is the star with the “Non and Sole Valleys apple and flavours Route”. Vast stretches of apple orchards afford this territory a unique charm. The gourmet offerings are enriched with cheeses like Trentingrana, Casolèt, vegetables and flavoursome salami.
The “Avisiane, Faedo, Valle di Cembra wine and hill flavours Route” showcase the Müller Thurgau vines cultivated up to an altitude of 700 metres having found its natural habitat in Valle di Cembra. But there are other show-pieces along this trail: the perfumed Trentino D.O.C. Nosiola wine, from the oldest indigenous white grape in Trentino, or the Trentino D.O.C. Chardonnay, an optimum base for Trento D.O.C. Classic method spumante. Alongside the wine production and not to be forgotten is the grappa, produced to an antique art in the Faver, Pressano and Segonzano farmsteads, as well as the local cured meats; from dried lucanica sausage to salt beef.

The “Vallagarina wine and flavours Route” is an over 200 kilometre long discovery of vineyards and cultivated fields taking in history, art and agriculture. The main product of this area is Marzemino; an indigenous red wine, as well as the Castione Chestnut, Val di Gresta bio vegetables and farmhouse cheeses from the Brentonico uplands.

The “Lake Garda to the Brenta Dolomites wine and flavours Route” between Lake Garda and the Dolomites is certainly the most extensive. Starting from the lake where Garda Trentino D.O.P extra virgin olive oil is produced and moving then to produce such as Dro plums and Santa Massenza and Torbole broccoli.

Not to be missed is the indigenous Nosiola white wine from which the fine Trentino Vino Santo is made as well as salt beef and ciuìga (a typical salame).
Continuing towards the Brenta Dolomites one comes across the Giudicarie D.O.P Spressa cheese. Alongside gourmet products there is no lack of Spas, sports facilities and historical sites such as churches and castles.

The inspiration behind the “Dolomites cheese Route” was to combine visiting high-altitude cheese production zones whilst travelling through one of the most beautiful parts of Trentino. We discover thus the Valle di Fassa, cradle of Ladino historical and cultural patrimony, with cheeses such as Spretz Tsaorì in Ladino, “tasty pressed”, better known as Puzzone di Moena.
The history of nearby Val di Fiemme has always been linked with the Paneveggio Natural Park – Pale di San Martino which protect and valorise the area’s natural and environmental characteristics. This area has given us well-known cheeses like Dolomiti, Caprino di Cavalese as well as fresh and smoked ricottas.
Crossing the Rolle Pass we are in the land of Primiero, Nostrani, ricotta, Tosèla and even butter, all the flavours of mountain farms, which still produce cheese as they always have.

APPLES
The Valle di Non apple is the only Italian D.O.P apple. At Segno, in the interesting, new Melinda centre, you can discover literally everything about the world of apples as well as being able to buy direct from them. . www.melinda.it

FOREST FRUITS
In the fifties the cultivation of forest fruits, which until then had grown spontaneously and were picked only occasionally, began. The major crops are wild strawberries, bilberries, currants and blackberries. At the Valsugana sales outlet, you will find all of these fruits and more. www.santorsola.com

ASPARAGUS
The famous Zambana asparagus has been grown along the River Adige floodplains since 1812. Approximately 150 quintals per year.
