Trentino-Alto Adige

Map of Trentino-Alto Adige

Olive oil is not generally produced in Trentino-Alto Adige except in the southern parts of the region in the microclimate near Lake Garda. The region is best known for great skiing in the Dolomites. Two of the interesting cities and towns in this region are Bolzano and Merano.

The region of Trentino-Alto Adige is considered to be two distinct regions by many, and in fact the differences between the Alto Adige region along the border of Austria and the Trentino region surrounding Trento and south are quite distinct.

There are essentially no olive trees grown in the Alto Adige region, but Trentino produces some fine oils, particularly in the area around Lago di Garda, just to the southwest of Trento and northwest of Verona. The oils of Trentino tend to be lighter than those of other regions. Try our Garda Organic for a taste of this region.
