VendemmiAmo. Love the grape harvest

Grape picking is a holiday!

Piana Rotaliana

Wine, nature, culture and food: your holiday in the heart of Trentino.

A wide range of activities for all tastes, for an all-round wine experience

The Piana Rotaliana Königsberg’s superb wine producers will be holding open days during the grape harvest, that lively period when the grapes are gathered and the wine making begins. This is a unique, unmissable experience, a time to have fun in close contact with nature.

CHOOSE YOUR ACTIVITY

There are several activities to choose from. Take a stroll through the vineyards with an expert local winemaker and learn about the history and techniques for selecting the best grapes.
Taste a few grapes or grab a pair of secateurs and a bucket and try your hand at picking grapes.
Visit the wineries, where, in the scent of must and the suffused lighting, you can discover the secrets of grape processing and wine making.
Afterwards, take part in an unconventional tasting and savour some renowned wines, such as Teroldego Rotaliano D.O.C., the prince of Trentino’s wines or Trentodoc Metodo Classico sparkling wine, and some fine grappas paired with local food specialities.
Alternatively, enjoy a pleasant picnic in the vineyards with zero-miles wines and food.
