• "WardaGarda", a new festival dedicated to oil

    The weekend of 3 and 4 September will see the debut of the new extra virgin olive oil festival sponsored by the Consortium Oil Dop Garda: it will be called WardaGarda and it will be hosted by the village of Cavaion Veronese, located in the east country hinterland of Lake Garda, in a beautiful hilly area not far from Bardolino and 25 km from Verona. The event promises two days of tastings, meetings in Corte Torcolo, headquarters of the Consortium, with the aim to encourage and promote a new form of tourism tied to the excellence of “made in Garda” extravirgin olive oil. During the event there will be a little market of typical italian products (like Polesano Garlic or Vialone Nano IGP Rice), and an exhibition of Valerio Marini with illustrations dedicated to the “oil women”. Saturday 3 from 4 pm there will be a workshop to learn how to taste and march oil with food, which will be followed by a show cooking by chef Bruno Bassetto: both initiatives will be repeated Sunday 4 from 3 pm, and also on Sunday at 10am there will be a walk through the olive groves open to all.
