Hostaria: Food & Wine Experience

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!

Verona celebrates art… and wine!

Wine has always been a source of inspiration for artists around the world. Scottish novelist, Robert Louis Stevenson, said it loud and clear: “Wine is bottled poetry”.

Now, Verona honors this special relationship between wine and art with the exhibition ‘Arte e Vino‘, open to the public at il Palazzo della Gran Guardia until August 16th.

Visitors will discover how the enjoyment of wine has been depicted throughout the history of art by means of 184 masterpieces by both Italian and foreign artists, such as Titian, Rubens and Picasso.

And, being a celebration of wine, it can’t but end with a wine tasting session for the visitors, who will also enjoy some lovely views of L’Arena.

From Palazzo Victoria, we invite you to delight both your eyes and your palate in Verona!
