The days get shorter, the climate becomes more sparkling and that unmistakable scent of chestnuts is released into the air. It is autumn, with its explosion of colors that, illuminated by the sun's rays, give a truly magical touch to woods and valleys. And it is October, in particular, the month in which this show is repeated, never equal to itself. This is why for 16 years the Trentino Wine and Flavors Route has chosen it to organize a series of initiatives dedicated to this season every weekend, thanks to the involvement of over seventy members.

Once the harvests have been archived and the harvests completed, the producers therefore open the doors of their farms to host the most curious food & wine lovers to discover all the secrets of the best local excellences. But not only: scheduled visits to the cellar and vineyard, taste experiences, walks and ebike tours to admire the infinite variations of the foliage, aperitifs, food and wine workshops, themed dinners and dedicated holiday proposals, in addition to the inevitable parties that celebrate the products most characteristic of the period. Appointments also designed for small groups of people, real taste experiences to "enjoy" with the family, as a couple or with friends, to experience the atmosphere of autumn in Trentino and savor its unmistakable flavors.

Several initiatives are repeated every weekend, such as Enotour d'Autunno at Borgo dei Posseri in Ala , scheduled every Friday and Saturday of the month - in which guests will be given a map that will lead to a series of islands positioned next to the vineyards, where you can taste a glass of company wine born from that particular vineyard combined with specialties from the Social Dairy of Sabbionara and Salumeria Belli - or Strolling in the vineyard , every Friday at the Cantina d'Isera , with a walk in the countryside of Isera and final tasting of the farm products, accompanied by the Biodebiasi specialties, the Sabbionara Dairy and the Modern Bakery, but also Doc & Dop , every Saturday at 4.30 pm , at the Mezzacorona-Rotari Cellars in San Michele all'Adige , where the guided tour will end in evocative Sala del Re, with guided tasting of the entire AlpeRegis Millesimati line combined with elegant finger food from Ristorante Da Pino, pen sati to enhance the various maturations and textures of Trentingrana, and the products of Panificio Sosi.
