Major Events going on at Lake Garda
There's always loads of stuff happening around the lake. October is a quieter time, but there are still some great events going on so make sure you check them out!
This is an exhibition worth checking out at Arco. It goes on from the 5th to the 7th of October.
An International Choir Competition at Riva del Garda that you should definitely get to if you're at Riva this month. It proposes 5 categories: traditional music, folklore and folkloristic performance, sacred music a cappella, sacred music and jazz, gospel and modern music. This happens from the 14th to the 18th October.
For all of you that are into biking, don't miss this one! It's the International MTB Competition going on at Limone sul Garda on the 21st October.
This is an exciting International Chess tournament taking place at Arco from the 20th-28th October.
The different types of Bardolino include:
Bardolino Classico DOC is produced on the east side of the lake, on a hilly area that's covered by vines and olives. The particularly mild climate, coupled with exposure to lots of
sunlight (both direct and reflected sunlight off the lake) allows the vines to produce the wonderful grapes (corvina, molinara, rondinella, negrara) which form the base of Bardolino wine.
Bardolino wine accompanies the typical dishes of the area very well. It's lovely with the "risotto
con la tinca" (rice with tench), the "bigoli in salsa" (pasta with fish sauce), pork and fowl.
If you're really into wine, particularly Bardolino wine, then you must go on the "Strada del Vino Bardolino". This is a well-marked wine road which includes 46 aziendas and cantinas where wines can be tasted and purchased. It meanders through several lakeside towns and the heart of the Bardolino wine growing region.
