One last bit on Trentino

Map of Trentino, from Wikipedia

If it seems we’ve been emphasizing Alto Adige over Trentino, you are correct.

It’s not that we prefer one over the other … there are some GREAT wines made in Trentino! But the truth of the matter is that most of the great wines of Trentino are consumed there, due to the strong tourism near Lake Garda and the proliferation of cafe culture in Verona.

What arrives in America from Trentino, for the most part, are of two camps: the great sparkling wines of Trentodoc, and mass-production forgettable wines such as Cavit.

But we wanted to give a few more links to information and articles about Trentino, just to balance things out a bit. Here you go!
