If we’re proud of something in Italy, it’s our food and wine—specially this time of year, when we are in the middle of vendemmia, the grape harvest. This weekend in Verona, we’re celebrating both in Hostaria, a wine festival and gourmet experience for the most demanding palates.
This weekend, from the 16th through the 18th, more than 80 wineries will be in charge of delighting your taste buds. You will be able to try more than 300 wines from all over the Veneto region: from Valpolicellas to Soaves. Along a path winding through the town’s historic downtown, you can become active protagonists of the festival by deciding to “follow the path” and taste the wines offered by participating wine cellars.
To go with them, make sure you try the food from the stands that will be offering risotto all’isolana, tortellini di Valeggio, typical Italian polentine and other artisan pasta. The foodie paradise will be completed by several activities taking place at the venue. Poets, art exhibitions, painters, musicians… will all perform at Hostaria. Oh! And if you’re visiting Verona with the kids, the event also has activities planned for them!
After a long day of Veronese food and wine, get a good night sleep at Palazzo Victoria!
