Farmer’s aperitif with Chiaretto wine, extra virgin olive oil, and locally grown grains
This is one of the most elegant, charming farms in western Lake Garda. La Filanda lies in a 100-hectare region of cultivated fields between Moniga and Manerba. A few minute walk will take you to the promontory with the Rocca castle and to a breathtaking view: the lake under your feet and a green plain all around, covered in olive groves and vineyards. Above, the sky is blue and below in the bay the water is emerald green and particularly clear.
The Cavazza family takes pleasure in welcoming those who are passionate for beauty and taste, to show them their olive oil production and tasting technique. Olive oil is the gold of Lake Garda. The Leccino, Frantoio and Pendolino varieties are cold pressed to produce extra virgin olive oil, which was granted the Dop protected origin denomination. You can sample it accompanied by bruschettas and local grains while filling your eyes and heart with the view of the golden sunset in the horizon.
The menu is paired with a glass of Chiaretto della Valtenesi wine to create a unique farmer’s aperitif. It’s a celebration of taste and culture in an authentic setting.
Adults and families who like local agricultural products.
