Lake Garda among the “10 Best Wine Travel Destinations of 2019” of Wine Enthusiast

To conquer the Italian editor Kerin O’Keefe, Bardolino, Chiaretto, Lugana, and Custoza, but also landscapes and history

Corvina Veronese and Rondinella the queen red varieties, from which Bardolino and Chiaretto are produced, Turbiana and Garganega characterize the production of white wine, with two exceptional flagships such as Lugana (on which in recent years, after Zenato, a pioneer brand of white wine from Veneto, have invested many other important companies, such as Santa Margherita and Allegrini) and Custoza. Lake Garda, with its wines, is among the “10 Best Wine Travel Destinations of 2019” of the magazine USA Wine Enthusiast.
Kerin O’Keefe, the Italian editor of the American wine magazine, was fascinated by the microclimate of Italy’s largest lake, surrounded by mountains but able to preserve true treasures of Mediterranean agriculture, from wine, of course, to oil, including lemons. All this amidst spectacular landscapes, medieval villages, and castles overlooking the lake, such as the Scaliger Castle of Sirmione, and Roman ruins such as the Grotte di Catullo (Caves of Catullus).

The only wine region in the Belpaese, Lake Garda is in the company of emerging territories and wine historians from around the world, from Tasmania to the Temecula Valley (California), from the Maipo Valley (Chile) to Beaujolais, from Thessaloniki to Lisbon, from Seattle to Lavaux (Switzerland) to Bangkok.
