Trentino Alto Adige

Trentino Alto Adige is in northwest Italy. This region is surrounded by the Lombardia and Veneto regions and by Austria and Switzerland. This is a wild and mountainous region…..startlingly beautiful — majestic. The main cities in the region are Trento, Merano, Bressanone and Bolzano. There is a large Tyrolean influence here (in cuisine, language, clothing and architecture). Trentino Alto Adige has grand valleys, sparkling rivers and lakes, strong traditions, the majestic Dolomite Mountains, lush vineyards, silvery olive orchards, curative spas, grand castles and pristine parks…… can ski, trek, climb, tour, dine, relax…… can simply enjoy this region and all that it has to offer…….

The cuisine and wine of Trentino Alto Adige is very good and has the definite influence of Tyrol. There are interesting local dishes and specialties like speck, canederli (a noodle/gnocchi soup), strudel, pastry, pretzels, smoked meats, mortadella and weiner schnitzel. Emphasis is on fruits, grains and game. There are some great cheeses like Grana Padana, Asiago and Provolone…..and great wines like Mitterberg tra Cauria, Alto Adige, Teroldego Rotaliano and Caldaro. It’s an easy hop to Austria or Switzerland from here…..this is one terrific region — not one that is as known by Americans as it should be………Enjoy!
