In its 87th edition the Bardolino Grape & Wine Festival attracts thousands of visitors every year. Set along the lakeshore, the festival is an arcade of stalls where visitors get the chance to sample a plethora of Bardolino wines from many of the region’s key producers. Alongside the wine there is plenty of food on offer and entertainment too.
Central to the festival is the annual prize giving in which a select number of wines and vineyards are awarded each year, vineyards or wines that have shown themselves to best the DOC’s finest. The awards are conferred upon the producers and wine estates by the Commune di Bardolino.
This year we are very pleased with a triple haul of gold medals, two of which were awarded to our vineyards and one to our Bardolino Classico DOC 2015.
It is particularly rewarding for us to see the vineyards (Tacchetto & our organic vineyard) come out on top and adding to lasts year’s vineyard award. Fitting well with our belief and philosophy, which centres on concentrating our efforts on the land and on the vines.
