Grand Hotel, gastronomic suggestions between Garda and the Mediterranean

The great culinary tradition has always been one of the main reasons to visit Italy. It is really hard to imagine a stay in Italy without Italian food, wine and local products. These are symbols of “made in Italy” that even nowadays are fascinating many visitors from all over the world. For this reason, the Grand Hotel Gardone is paying a lot of attention to the taste. Our priority goal has always been to offer our guests a relaxing sensory experience relating to the valorisation of the territory, the culture and the fine cuisine. This aim has influenced our offer for the season 2017, as well. The spring is getting closer and even the opening, so our chef is working at improving his creations with which we will try to live up to our guests’ expectations. Among the recipes that will be in the menu 2017 at the restaurant à la carte “Giardino dei Limoni”, we must mention the Beef Tartare with truffle, burratina and anchovies. A fresh starter from the land and the sea combining the truffle from Lake Garda hills with high quality meat. A soft burratina and savoured anchovies enrich this dish and exalt its Mediterrenean flavour. As to say: a perfect dish for a summer night along the lake to taste while waiting for the sunset and paired with a glass of Valtenesi Chiaretto, a rosé wine from the West shore of Lake Garda that this year should be special thanks to the great grape harvest 2016.


Chiaretto, the wine for a night.... and for lovers

In a few days many people around the word will celebrate St. Valentine’s Day. On Lake Garda the traditional Feast of Lovers coincides with the arrival on the market of Valtenesi Chiaretto, a rosé wine produced on the West lakeshore. This is a unique wine because it is made from indigenous vine Groppello: rare grapes growing on 400 hectares only in this area of Lake Garda and nowhere else in the world. In occasion of St. Valentine’s, it is amazing to remember of how the origin of Chiaretto is closely linked to a faraway love story between a noblewoman from Lake Garda, Amalia Brunati, and a Venetian senator, Pompeo Molmenti, that got married in 1885. In the Brunati family’s land in Moniga del Garda the Senator began to develop and improve the production method of Chiaretto that was well spread from ancient times, or to be exact, from ‘500. The secret of Valtenesi Chiaretto is in the must that remains in contact only few hours with the skins of red grapes harvested in September. During the nocturnal ritual of racking, cellerman must implement his skills in capturing the freshness and the essence of a territory. The result is a savoury, fragrant and fresh rosé with fruity notes but capable of acquiring harmonic, elegant and balanced features during the ageing process. Even though this is a wine of great traditions, it is able to match consumer tastes above all because it pairs well with food ranging from starters to main courses (and in particular with risotto) and from freshwater fish to white meat dishes. So, ideal for any mealtime! In the next summer season you can taste the freshness of this rosé wine at our restaurants. Again this year, Chiaretto will be in the wine list together with the most prestigious wines of the territory.  


A sweet memory from Lake Garda to spend your winter days

The first month in 2017 has already passed and the summer season is coming closer more and more. It’s time to think about summer holiday on Lake Garda that is covered in a blanket of fog in these days. This weather is common in winter that this year has recorded unusually low temperatures. So, sun and hot weather are still far away. Therefore, there is nothing better than relieving you by remembering summer with a great Italian dessert signed by Grand Hotel Gardone. In our kitchen, the pastry chef is already at work to improve the menu for the season 2017. Among the proposals the Greedy Trilogy cannot be missed because of its great success last year. It is a “pyrotechnic” dessert, dedicated to greedy people of all ages. It combines different delicacies: chocolate mousse, creamy lemon and mascarpone pudding with a refined and satisfying taste of extreme delicacy. What better way to spend these freezing days and dreaming about your next stay in Gardone Riviera?


Rocca di Manerba, a destination not to be missed for summer 2017

It is one of the most enchanting natural attractions on Lake Garda: a big area of 900 thousand sqm rich in historical and environmental values. Rocca di Manerba is undoubtedly one of the top destinations to visit during summer 2017 on Lake Garda. You can reach the cliff by car from the city centre of Manerba, leaving from the suburb Montinelle and parking the car opposite the visitors’ centre. There begins your great excursion: the top of the Rocca is a real rocky spur falling sheer into the lake and dominated by a big cross offering breathtaking views to be photographed. In addition to this, the Rocca is an important environmental and historical heritage. In this area, you can visit a medieval fortification where have been identified stratifications dating back to 4000 BC. Thanks to its strategic position, the Rocca had attracted man since stone age and it was inhabited till XVIth century. From the big cross starts a steep path that leads to the heart of a naturalistic oasis, an extraordinary heritage rich in natural beauties, such as wild orchids, and fauna that here have found their habitat. Even though all the paths are well marked, for people who do not love to face difficult trails, you can visit the oasis through an easier path from the opposite side of the park with starting point from the parking on the way to Dusano harbor. In this case, you should visit the little St. George Church. After your excursion to the Rocca, you should have a look at the Archeological Museum placed near the Visitors’ centre, where there are archeological finds found during workings on the top of the cliff. The park has just been recognized as reserve, “Riserva della Rocca e del Sasso”. This means that this great heritage will benefit from much more rigorous protection than in the past. Already from the next season there will be at disposal more resources to promote the natural beauty of the park and welcome tourists. In this sense, the municipality of Manerba is at work to include appropriate guidelines that can facilitate the visit of tourists like for example signals on paths and explanatory panels about natural and historical treasures.
