At the Grand Hotel Gardone the summer cocktail is the "Dannunziano"

The story of Gabriele D'Annunzio and that of the Grand Hotel Gardone Riviera are intimately intertwined. The great italian poet and writer is notoriously numbered among the many distinguished guests in the first big hotel on Lake Garda: and to  the “Lord of the Vittoriale” Grand Hotel has dedicated not only one of its most prestigious and sought-after rooms, but also a summer cocktail that many guests are now used to sip every night at the tables of Winnie's Bar, contemplating the beauty of lake Garda and waiting for the dinner hour. The Dannunziano, as this fascinating cocktail was baptized, has now a long history: it was created in October 2002 to commemorate the twinning of Gardone Riviera and Pescara, birthplace of the poet. The meeting between the mayors of the two cities was held in the halls of the Grand Hotel and was signed with this very cocktail whose base is made up of fresh blueberries centrifuged (3/10), mixed with champagne Pol Roger (6/10) and 1/10 Aurum, a delicious orange-flavored liqueur produced right in Pescara. The color, for its severe tones, is reminiscent of the interior of the Vittoriale: and the taste, fresh but intense at the same time, is really worth discovering.


A Menu for a taste of Garda at the Grand Hotel

Among the new features that characterize the summer 2016 season at the Grand Hotel Gardone, there are also the creations of the Territory Menu proposed for tasting at the restaurant à la carte Giardino Dei Limoni, and designed to enhance the traditional cuisine of Lake Garda in a modern key, always deeply respectful of raw materials. The menu changes regularly to ensure guests a total sensory experience of good food and good living on Lake Garda: but some proposals have already become a must in the Giardino dei Limoni such as Pink Trout Benaco Speck with Medicinal Herbs of Mount Baldo and Cereals Toast: a dish of great delicacy and harmony joined by another starter of particular balance such as the Lghtly Smoked Char on Misticanza and Fior di Maderno Caper. These are opening courses where lightness prevails, ideal for continuing with a rather rich and sumptuous pasta dish as the Whitefish Ravioli with artichokes on Pozzolengo Saffron fondue, which confirms the kitchen will to focus on an often unrecognized heritage as Lake fish. Alternatively, you can opt for the Formaggella di Tremosine Tortelloni, prepared with one of the most popular and widespread Garda cheeses and served in the classic Brescia version, with mountain butter and crispy sage. The alternation recurs also in the main courses between fish (the Whitefish Delights to Garda perfumes) and white meat with a recipe, the White of Guinea Hen White Truffle Scorzone of Valtènesi, recalling that is also a land where you can find good truffles. It is to be remembered that Giardino dei Limoni is also opened to external clients.


San Martino della Battaglia, a Garda wine to discover

When it comes to Lake Garda wines, thoughts immediately go to Lugana, perhaps the most successful Italian white wine in recent years, or the Chiaretto, the rosé that expresses a vocation of century-old tradition. But there is also a "gem" that often tends to be forgotten: the reference is to San Martino della Battaglia Doc, which we might call "the other white of Garda". 


Perla del Garda, a record-breaking Lugana in the Grand Hotel Gardone wine list

 Lake Garda is now emerging worldwide as one of the territories of great excellence for wines production: new important confirmations in this regard come from Perla del Garda, which conquered three awards at the last edition of the Decanter World Wine Awards in London, the world's largest wine competition launched in 2004 by the British magazine Decanter.
