Wineries, Wine and Oil Tastings

In the Brescia shore of the Lake Garda the wine-producing tradition is deeply rooted in the history, culture and landscape of this area.

Especially in the area between Padenghe and Salò we mention the following wines: Doc Valtenesi with its Red and Chiaretto types and Garda Classico in its Red, White, Chiaretto and Groppello versions.
Many wineries and oil manufactures of Valtenesi offer the possibility of guided tours and tastings of their products.

Our staff is happy to recommend the most renowned wineries in the area.
