The Chiaretto Contest 2017 (“Palio del Chiaretto”), the festival of the rosé wine from Lake Garda, is held in Bardolino from 2 to 4 June 2017.
The 13th edition of the “Palio del Chiaretto” in Bardolino dedicates three days to the promotion and tasting of Chiaretto DOC, Chiaretto Classico DOC and Chiaretto spumante DOC (sparkling wine) from local wineries.
The Riva Cornicello lakeside will turn pink, symbol colour of the event and there will be food stalls offering fish, cold cuts, risotto and white meats accompanied by the Chiaretto wines with a fresh and pleasant flavour.
There are various music and cultural side events, of which the national dragon boat is worth mentioning. Historic boats with a dragon-like head and tail are rowed to the rhythm of the drums. Another highlight is the parade of the Chiaretto brotherhood and the subsequent appointment of the new international Chiaretto ambassadors.
Folklore, fireworks, music and sports will attract thousands of visitors from all over Europe.
