Bardolino is a town situated on Lake Garda which is famous for its wine. Each year there is a festival to mark the maturation and distribution of the Bardolino wine which is a dry red wine. Its fresh and fruity flavour is usually accompanied with light dishes such as pasta and salads but many enjoy it with the famous Italian antipasti (a selection of starters you eat before having a main meal). At the Bardolino wine festival there are plenty of opportunities to try out the different variations of Bardolino wines as well as various food stalls. Not only are there a selection of various food and wine stalls but the whole event is held along the lakeside with music and fireworks. The event is usually held around the end of September to the start of October and is a lovely occasion with a great atmosphere.
