• 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.

  • The Grand Hotel between the "Italian Historical Places"

    A new important recognition for the Grand Hotel Gardone: the structure has been introduced in the “Locali Storici d’Italia”, a prestigious cultural italiana association, which operates under the patronage of the Ministry of Heritage and Culture. The primary objective of the association, born in 1961, is the preservation of hotels, restaurants, taverns, cafes, bakeries that for at least 70 years have been protagonists of Italian history. The association currently comprises of 240 public exercises, of which at least a third are hotels. Among these there’s now also the Grand Hotel Gardone, opened in 1884 and since then at the crossroads of history ancd culture with guests such as the Nobel Prize for Literature Paul Heyse, Winston Churchill, Gabriele D'Annunzio, Benito Mussolini and Vladimir Nabokov. The Grand Hotel was also included in the guide of the association, where it is described as "a majestic row of buildings on the lake with splendid halls and ceilings, expressions of the Belle Epoque and Art Nouveau" concessions.
