Accademia degli Ugolini - Grand Tour d'Italia

Unisciti a Noi! Vi aspettiamo Domenica 14 Ottobre 2018 dalle ore 10,00 alle 18,00

In honour of the Val Polis Cellae event on Sunday 14th October 2018, the “Accademia degli Ugolini” (Ugolini Academy) is delighted to invite you to the “Grand Tour d’Italia“, a one-of-a-kind opportunity to sample delicacies from all over Italy. From Trentino to Sicily, take your tastebuds on a journey through Italy without being limited by regional boundaries. Starting in Valpolicella, we invite you to sample the best each region has to offer, from sweets to wines, with gourmet experts, journalists and sommeliers as your guides. And all of this without having to set foot outside the breathtaking grounds of the Villa San Michele in Fumane. The event is held across various rooms inside the house and in the beautiful gardens. Tastings take place between 10am and 6pm inside (every two hours) and from 10am to 6pm outside in the garden (every hour). Join us for this unique experience that will delight your culinary senses, with the famous Morellino di Scansano wine and risotto made from the award-winning Melotti rice (available to sample between 11am and 2pm) only some examples of the delicacies on offer. And there is a feast for the eyes too. Gaia Bellini, a local artist born in Bardolino by Lake Garda, will be exhibiting her works. The artist has made nature the main protagonist of her creative outlet, as evident in her paintings incorporating leaves, flowers, berries, bark and roots. We would be thrilled if you would join us on this all-round sensory extravaganza: five rooms, four regions and countless flavours to be discovered in the company of experts who will be delighted to guide you through the selection of fine wines, carefully paired with some of the best regional delicacies that only Italy could offer.
