Thank you to everyone that joined us so far to help us make “The Regional Food & Wine Tour Around Italy” an interesting and educational evening. A personal thank you to all my staff that always work hard from the kitchen creating exquisite and well presented dishes, to the front of house team giving our Customers First class service with a smile and thank you to Luigi at Alivini for giving us so much knowledge on the history of wine.

On Thursday 25th July we will be knocking on the doors of Trentino Alto Adige Region. As always we will enjoy a four course tasting set menu pairing with wines.Trentino is one of the few Italian regions not touched by the sea, with a mostly mountainous territory including the majestically beautiful Dolomite group, and a great number of small lakes.Historically under the domain of Austria for long centuries, and in the Northern part as a consequence the German language is still spoken, therefore the region is officially bilingual.Famous for its production of apples and wines.

The traditional food of Trentino Alto Adige is based on simple yet tasty dishes, made with the products of local agriculture and farming.
The region’s most celebrated specialty is the Tyrol smoked ham known as Speck. For salami, kaminwurz is very tasty; with typical cheeses represented by grana trentin, toma di montagna and casolet cheeses. Everyone knows polenta, served as a first course and prepared with corn meal or buckwheat, and served with a meat, cheese or mushroom sauce.

The Trentino has a large number of local and international wines have their first-choice cultivation area in the Trentino, where the main cultivation zones are the Val d’Adige, the Val di Cembra and the Valle di Sarca valleys. A particular grapevine is the white Nosiola that is cultivated in the Valle dei Laghi and Val di Cembra. Among the local types of red wines, all the light and fruity Marzemino deserves to be mentioned, equally the Teroldego Rotaliano. Some of the first-class international grapevines that are cultivated in the Trentino are the Müller Thurgau, the Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and the Pinot Grigio.
