2023 Palio del Chiaretto

Palio del Chiaretto Bardolino 2023

2023 Palio del Chiaretto


From 26 to 28 May the Palio del Chiaretto returns, the historical event held every year in Bardolino, 10 minutes from Lazise on Lake Garda. This Palio is dedicated to the lake's famous wine, the Chiaretto di Bardolino Rosé, and is also a celebration of local culture and tradition.

The three days of festivities include cultural, culinary, and musical events that rejuvenate the historic city center. Attractions include wine tastings, traditional music, dance performances, and artisan markets.

However, the true star of the show is always the wine Chiaretto DOC, always traditionally exhibited by local producers in specifically dedicated stands. Here you can enjoy tastings that allow you to explore the varieties of rosé in "Classico DOC" and "Spumante DOC" and thus discover the unique characteristics of Chiaretto wine.

Chiaretto Bardolino DOC is made with local red grapes and skilfully vinified in rosé to obtain its characteristically delicate and fruity aroma. On the palate, the rosé is flavorful and harmonious at the same time. Perfect as an aperitif, Chiaretto pairs beautifully with fish dishes sourced from both the lake and sea, and also goes well with pizza and sushi. The 2023 Palio del Chiaretto just happens to be an excellent opportunity to try local and trendy cuisine accompanied by the Bardolino Rosé.

Visit the large Carrara Bottagisio Park to find the Palio del Chiaretto, an area entirely dedicated to food and wine with a busy program of musical entertainment. Meanwhile, the Mirabello lakefront is the perfect place to shop for wine, oil, and other culinary products from Lake Garda.

Hotel Smeraldo is only 5 km from the Palio del Chiaretto, which can also be easily reached by bicycle. We look forward to seeing you in Lazise from 26 to 28 May 2023.
