Undisturbed oases of tranquility able to cater for all your tastes and needs.
A food and wine holiday in Veneto in fact offers the best way to experience the traditions and customs of local life. Thanks to their locations (often situated near to the larger centres of art),
a food and wine holiday unites all the values of the territory: nature, history and well-being combine in a typical day dedicated to the gastronomy of the Veneto, where the palate is always satisfied yet there is always more to tempt you.
Food & wine in Veneto also means sampling the unique countryside and natural beauty, discovering age-old traditions of farming life, escaping from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and living by the cycle of the sun rather than your watch. Here ‘food and wine’ and ‘holiday’ combine to signify total relaxation and enjoyment, immersed among the harmonious natural setting.
Venetian food and wine is also famous for its specialities which all have the common denominator of tradition and love for the earth. All products from the region arise from centuries-old knowledge, such as the medival monasteries which have greatly contributed to the land’s famous wine culture. In fact the Veneto produces more prestigious wines (both in aquality and quantity) than all the other Italian regions.
The Veneto does not only mean wine: Bassano del Grappa and Conegliano are home to grappa, the high-alcohol content spirit famed throughout the world.
As for local foods, the typical Venetian dish is polenta. Most local specialities utilise simple ingrediants, not strong in flavour. Venetian cuisine favours rice and sea foods with vegetables. Other local recipies include tripe, the red asparagus of Treviso, ‘risi bisi’, a rice and pea dish, pasta with beans, Bassano asparagus and Aisago cheese.
Among its many sweets we may single out galani, pinza (a type of biscuit), and two of the most well-known of all Italian desserts, tiramisù and pandoro. Discover the traditional Venetian cuisine on an unforgettable vacation.
