“Aleatico in Festa” Gradoli
27/29 July The history of Aleatico has distant origins and has been lost over the centuries: there are several legends that link it to the town of Gradoli, already a city in ancient times of Etruscan civilization. In the last weekend of July and the first of August the ancient village is filled with activities, tastings and shows that celebrate the famous wine made in this area.
The winemaking tradition and that of taste are the undisputed leading features of the various events that take place during the summer season, in this area near the Cimini mountains in the upper Lazio region.
Going around the wine festivals is a nice way to discover the Tuscia products.
The impressive landscape immersed in the woods overlooking the lake and the excellent features of the territory make Aleatico in Festa an important meeting point that attracts thousands of tourists and visitors.
Take an opportunity to fully appreciate the beauty of these lands at the table.
The main protagonist is the aleatico wine, with its own velvety, intense and fragrant flavour, which is offered to visitors and comes directly from the best wineries present in this areas.
The food stands that offer degustation of all the traditional products of the territory are found in public gardens and every evening is dedicated to one of the gastronomic excellences of Gradoli and its surroundings.
We enjoy the Purgatorio bean, bruschetta with olive oil, local wines, traditional sweets, while we always drink some aleatico.
The evenings continue with the musical entertainment of various groups and with the dances until late at night.
Gradoli, as part of the splendid environmental context of the Bolsena lake, is an ideal destination for all those who seek the quality of an interesting, stimulating territory, full of important food and wine specialities of an area that is rich in history, nature and taste.
