Unique and inimitable flavours

Flavours of autumn


Autumn in Veneto boasts the colour and scent of chestnuts, wine, radicchio and olive oil. A season when everything is tinged with shades of yellow, red, orange and brown and that offers a range of delicacies for the palate. Discover them here.

It's time to eat too many chestnuts! In the Treviso area you will find Marrone di Combai and Marrone del Monfenera chestnuts, both PGI products , while the Marrone di San Zeno PDO is produced in the Verona area, between the slopes of Monte Baldo and Lake Garda. Enjoy them roasted, boiled or add them as a special ingredient to a dish, even savoury.

Undecided on what to serve with your cold appetizer? Our suggestion is a tasty “pasta and beans”, one of the most beloved recipes and strongly linked to the tradition of the Veneto area. The main ingredient will obviously be the Fagiolo di Lamon della Vallata Bellunese PGI bean.

Autumn in Veneto boasts the red colour of radicchio. Four products, all with the PGI brand: Radicchio Rosso di Treviso (early and late), Radicchio Variegato di Castelfranco, Radicchio di Verona and Radicchio di Chioggia. Drive along the Strada del Radicchio Rosso di Treviso e Variegato di Castelfranco route and immerse yourself in a world full of history, art and authentic flavours

The time has come for grape harvests and Veneto wines are one of the world's excellences: from delicate whites to full-bodied reds, to elegant straw wines. Ten Wine Routes for a beautiful scenic route packed with culture, where you will find wineries ready to open their doors for guided tours and tastings.

Autumn at Lake Garda, the Asolo hills, the Euganean Hills and the Berici Hills is splashed with gold. The PDO extra virgin olive oil produced in these areas also has golden reflections, a delicate, harmonious and balanced oil on the palate and highly appreciated by consumers. These come from small productions but all of the highest quality.
