Consorzio Garda Doc for
GARDA DOC EXPERIENCE, the wine tourism portal from the Consorzio Garda DOC, was created based on the holistic view of an appellation that represents a region that’s unlike any other in the world.
It’s a project created to promote one of the world’s most famous tourist destinations, its winemaking excellence and unmistakeable lifestyle.
A portal with the distinctive benefit of capturing the different features of the region, just like a glass of Garda DOC wine, enabling the millions of tourists who flock to the shores of Lake Garda each year to fully discover and enjoy all the high-quality experiences offered by the unique nature of the Garda System.
A modern and contemporary tool to explore the diverse facets of the appellation, where you can learn more about the people, stories, brands and places that make Lake Garda one of a kind.
A virtual forum that brings together the winemaking of Verona, Brescia and Mantua all in one place and promotes both the activities found in the vicinity of the lake, with sections dedicated to the experiences available in the region as well as to customers of the Consortium’s brands, including hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs and wine bars and shops.
DOC GARDA 10 EXCELLENCES MIRRORED ON THE LAKE
From whatever point you look at Lake Garda, it mirrors a millenary history of culture, wise transformation and enhancement of fine-quality raw materials. This lake, the largest in Italy, is the heart of designations of excellence that unfold among castles, around small, picturesque ports and little villages, where time seems to have stood still. Garda Doc has its roots in these hills embroidered with vineyards, in a hinterland that reveals unique atmospheres. The predominantly hilly production area surrounds the lake, extending from Valtènesi to Valpolicella, from the banks of the Mincio River to Verona. The Garda Doc area was officially recognised in 1996, with the aim of underlining the value of the varietal wines of the 10 historical designations of the Garda area between the Lombardy and Veneto regions. The surface area planted with vines totals 31,000 hectares, mostly in the province of Verona (27,889 hectares), with the remaining 3,211 divided between the provinces of Mantua and Brescia.
