The Bardolino Wine Route in the province of Verona runs along the east shore of Lake Garda from Peschiera and Sona in the south to Garda and Albaré in the north.
To get to know the this wonderful area near Lake Garda follow the signposted route which takes in 16 comune and 70 small agricultural producers, all of whom sell directly to visitors.
You can find a list of all the wine makers from the links below or by downloading the attachment.
It was set up in 1968 and covers 12 comune and over 50 farms and estates where you can break your journey and sample the local produce.
As well as wine, the other typical products from around the lake include freshwater fish, asparagus, 'tortellini di Valeggio', chestnuts and truffles from Baldo, as well as peaches and kiwi fruit.
The former are said to turn the countryside a fantastic pink color during the Spring.
Do keep in mind that the name Bardolino is probably of German origin. Legend states that Bardali was the daughter of King Axuleto and the grand-daughter of Manto, the founding father of Mantova.
The wine was also one of the few to survive the medieval period. It was kept alive by the monks from the Church of San Colombano.
Every March in Lazise, one of those small towns which sit snugly on the shores of Lake Garda, a couple of interesting gastronomic events take place.
The first is the 'Campionato del Risotto col Tastasàl' while the second is 'Alla scoperta dei formaggi d'Italia'.
The Tastasàl Risotto competition is held every year and is features 6 competing risottos. Three to start with, a salad to clear the palate, then the second three. A sorbetto to finish.
For ideal wines with risotto try these: Piano Maltese Nero D'Avola Azienda Rapitalà (Sicily), Sartiano Umbria Igt azienda Azienda Bigi (Umbria), Valpolicella Solane Azienda Santi (Veneto), Barbera d'Asti Azienda Cà Bianca (Piemonte).
A sister event also takes place called 'Gastronomia Al Molino di Santa Maria di Negrar' and takes the non expert through an appreciation of mountain cheeses such as the following:
Cravanzina (cow, Piemonte); Roccaverano in foglia (goat, Piemonte); Monte Veronese giovane (cow, Veneto); Taleggio artigianale (cow, Lombardia); Pratomaggio (6 months, cow, Lombardia); Parmigiano Reggiano (38 months, cow, Emilia); Pecorino di Grosseto (sheep, Toscana); Blu del Moncenisio (cow, Piemonte); Provolone Romano (30 months, cow, Lazio); Testun (cow and sheep, Piemonte); Bagoss (36 months, cow, Lombardia).

At only 30 km from the historical, romantic city of Verona it is the ideal starting point to discover everything the Veneto region has to offer.
