October marks the beginning of the harvest season, which has always been celebrated by the farmers with a good drink of wine and chestnuts roasted on the fire.

The Chestnut Festival continues in this tradition and aims to bring this precious food back to our guests. For four weeks we organise interesting guided tours, delicious tastings and varied walks around the chestnut. There are concerts, readings and lectures. Very much in demand are the introductions to the secrets of the chestnut tart, which our confectioners and pastry chefs reveal. And we celebrate, bigger and smaller parties, to which we invite everyone very warmly. 

 Some events that will take place during the Chestnut Festival 2022:

 

  • Opening Ceremony, Saturday
  • Caminä e Mangä - culinary walk through the chestnut grove. Sunday 
  • Al dì di brascher - Chestnut Festival, Sunday 
  • Visit of the Palazzo Salis in Bondo 
  •  Closing Ceremony, Sunday
