Uva e Dintorni – Grapes and nearby
Where? Sabbionara d'Avio
In the City of Wine, the feast of the harvest and the national barrel rolling competition
Tasting of wines, visit of vineyards and dinner in the “courtyards of taste” with music, theatre, drummers and fantasy characters at a few kilometres from Verona.
With “Uva e dintorni (grapes and nearby)” Trentino celebrates the beginning of the harvest on the first weekend of September in Avio, the village of the castle of FAI. Here you can discover the atmosphere of the past through views of the Medieval life and ancient jobs.
Discover the “hobby-market” and the artistic-handcrafts exhibition; take part to “bread-course” with Matilde or to guided tours to vineyards with local wine tasting. For dinner we suggest you to choose typical menus, served in the “courtyards of taste” with local salamis and cheeses, home-made cakes, wines, liquors and coffee.
Shows and music will entertain the old town during the whole festival. Don’t miss the knightly-tournament on Sunday!
The National barrel rolling competition among the “towns of wine” will take place on Sunday September 4th.
The final event, at night, will enchant you with the traditional fireworks show, an exciting date of summer-end in Avio.
The harvest festival is waiting for you in Trentino, not far from Verona.
