Uva e Dintorni – Grapes and nearby
In the town of wine, the harvesting festival and the national casks contest
Wine tasting, visit to vineyards and dinner in the courtyards with music, street-art, drummers and fantastic characters, just few steps from Verona.
With “Uva e dintorni” Trentino-region celebrates the beginning of harvest. The event takes place the first weekend of September in Avio, only few steps far from FAI- Castle. Here you will appreciate the atmosphere of the past, between medieval-life and ancient crafts.
Discover the hobbyist-market and the local crafts exposition, attend the “Bread-course” of Matilde or enjoy the guided tours though the vineyards or palaces.
For dinner we suggest typical food by “Corti dei Sapori” with skewers, shin, salami, cheese, home-made desserts, wines, grappa and coffee.
Itinerant shows and music will animate the historical centre during the whole festival.
Last but not least: the procession and the “national casks contest” between the Wine-cities, on Sunday afternoon.
The challenge is divided in 4 trials: the up-hill cask push, the cask-slalom, the grape treading, the cask water filling.
The grand finale in the evening with the “Enchanting” fireworks, the traditional greeting to the summer-end in the Municipality of Avio.
“Uva e dintorni” is waiting for you, only few kilometres far from Verona!
