  • 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 Lightly 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.

  • 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.

  • Gardone Riviera and its Grand Hotel on the TgCom24 site

    In summer 2016 our Grand Hotel and Gardone Riviera are among the most media recommended tourist destinations. 

  • Gardone Riviera between The Most Beautiful Villages of Italy

    There’s a new important recognition for Gardone Riviera: the "garden city" of Lake Garda has been included in the prestigious club of the "Most Beautiful Villages of Italy", created in 2001 with the aim of promoting the great heritage of traditions and beauty represented by small Italian towns.

    The Garda so doubles its presence in the club, which has already welcomed the town of Tremosine.

    The Most Beautiful Villages of Italy are currently more than 200, including twenty in Lombardy: a list of exclusive places which now includes also Gardone Riviera, adding this banner to the Orange Flag of the Touring Club. There is then also the primacy of the Bandiera Blu or Blue Flag: Gardone is the only town in Lombardy which was given this award, as further demonstration of how the "garden city" is really considered to be one of the destinations of excellence of Lake Garda.

  • Gardone Riviera, the unique municipality with the Blue Flag

     

    Gardone Riviera has confirmed the blue flag. Even this year the “garden city” on Lake Garda has obtained the prestigious recognition for water quality, for the excellence of services provided and for the environmental protection. Gardone is the unique municipality in the Lombardy region and on Lake Garda to be awarded  with the Orange Flag of Touring, with the Green Flag given by Confederazione Italiana Agricoltori (Italian Farmers Confederation) and with the Four Sails of Legambiente, an Italian environmentalist association.

     

  • Gardone waits for the chocolate night 2016

    The seventh edition of Notte Fondente (Dark chocolate Night) is scheduled in Gardone Riviera for the evening of August 26th 2016: the now traditional event comes back as every year in late August to turn Gardone into a gastronomic journey in the name of sweetness. The main ingredient, as always, is chocolate, which will be the highlight of the dishes created by 24 local chefs and proposed along four routes, each characterized by a different color, in the historic center of the "garden city" of Lake Garda. The circuit will start from Vittoriale Square and the dishes will be paired with wines from the main Lae Garda wineries: the available places are only 600. The event will be held from 7.30 pm to midnight and the participation coupons costs 35 €: they include 2 starters, 2 pasta plates, 2 main courses, water, 3 desserts, 7 wine tastings, 1 coffee. Tickets can also be purchased online by credit card or Pau Pal at the www.soffiata.it site with addition of 2 euros for presale.

  • Gardone, Mid-August in "vintage" style

    August arrives and the Liberty garden of Lake Garda is preparing a full week to remember "the way we were": from Monday, August 15 the lake promenade D'Annunzio in Gardone Riviera will host the event "Vintage and Ottonovecento", a market exhibition dedicated to vintage, to collectors of antiques, design objects and fashion accessories of the past that still seem in touch with modern times. There will be the chance to spend some tome in this small “memory market”, seeking fanciful objects or curiosities sought for such a long time. The event will take place all week: Monday 15 and Sunday 21 opening is scheduled from 10 am to 10 pm, and from Tuesday 16 to Saturday 20 the exhibition will be open from 6 to 11 pm.

  • Grand Spritz, the Mid-August Drink at Grand Hotel Gardone

    In 2012 our barman Massimo Mannella created this new cocktail because he wanted to dedicate a drink to Grand Hotel Gardone. This “ultimate signature cocktail” is served in a wine glass carefully selected and then personalized with the logo of Grand Hotel and the name of the drink. In this way, we satisfy any request of a lot of clients/friends that often ask us objects of Winnie’s bar as souvenir of their stay.

    The recipe is based on fresh centrifuged carrots, aperol and prosecco. The unexpected and surprising combination of vegetable, wine and liqueur gives as a result a fresh and healty drink. That is an alternative to the well-known and a little bit ordinary Aperol Spritz. Its success is the answer to our choice. 

  • Jazz and rock stars from Lake Garda to Brescia

    The coming week will be full of high profile music events: it opens today with a concert by Pat Metheny and Ron Carter scheduled at Vittoriale in Gardone Riviera, where the two jazz giants will be on stage this evening with the critically acclaimed world tour that in the coming days will make a stop at the prestigious Umbria Jazz Festival. 

  • Merry Christmas from Gardone with the Divine Infant

    Lake Garda is getting ready to celebrate Christmas with unusually low temperatures. Despite of these cold last days of December, the lake is ready to welcome and fascinate many visitors with its splendid panoramas that during these feasts will become even more magic and enchanting. Undoubtedly, Gardone Riviera is a must even in Christmas time on Lake Garda thanks to the museum of the Divine Infant, a unique reality that houses a marvelous collection of sculptures of the Baby Jesus. Inaugurated in November 2005 by Hilky Mayr, a collector of German origin that has devoted more than 35 years of her life to the collection and restoration of these statues. The museum has more than 250 sculptures from over 4 centuries representing the history of the iconography related to the central figure of Christmas. Therefore, we could not choose anything else than a nice picture of the Divine Infant to wish you all, guests and visitors of Lake Garda, a merry Christmas. Talking of the museum, we would like to remember you that you can visit it during summer time and that it is located near the Grand Hotel Gardone. Another reason to come back and visit us in 2017.

    We are almost at the end of 2016. This year has been for our Grand Hotel Gardone an important turning point with many stimulating challenges like for example the launch of our blog.

  • 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". 

  • See you in 2018 at the Grand Hotel Gardone!

    After a beautiful summer, even for us has arrived the moment to relax: today the Grand Hotel Gardone closes for the winter break and we can say that the successful season has officially finished. We have behind us 6 months of hard work to make guests feel welcomed and at home. Even this year the Grand Hotel has aimed at improving its services with an offer rich in charm, relaxation and historic value in order to make guests experience a stay at 360 degrees in Lake Garda style. To reach this goal, we have continued to invest in communication like in social networks and our GHG Blog, conceived for tourists that want to learn more about Lake Garda and events. This means of communication will continue to be active during winter for all tourists that want to be updated and get the latest news about the Grand Hotel Gardone and Lake Garda. Many journalists have been hosted and have experienced the atmosphere at the hotel and its historic charm, so they have talked about it in their articles underlining the importance of the hotel as an institution for tourism on Lake Garda. Now is the moment for a break but in reality from tomorrow we will be at work planning the new season in order to improve our offer to meet our guests’ expectations. For us this post is an ideal occasion to thank all our dear guests that have chosen the Grand Hotel Gardone and have contributed to make this season a special one. But no nostalgia: the winter season will pass very soon and we will be there again to welcome you back.

    Many thanks to everybody and see you soon on March 2018!
