Terlano Asparagus Weeks

The asparagus season lasts from the end of March to May: The dishes are perfectly combined with a glass of local Sauvignon blanc

Terlano is famous for its asparagus: The season runs from the end of March to the end of May, when on the 10 hectares of cultivated area around the village this greatly appreciated vegetable is harvested. In the Valle dell'Adige, where the river has filled this piece of land with fine earth and sand, the asparagus grows especially well. It is mild in flavour and protected throughout Europe under the brand name "Margarete". Water makes up more than 90% of the its composition, furthermore it is a good source of vitamin C, E and beta-carotene as well as B complex vitamins.

With a delicious asparagus dish you also need a special wine - the "asparagus", a Sauvignon blanc of the Terlano Winery. It is characterised by its delicate fruity bouquet and the fresh aromas. You can enjoy asparagus dishes in the asparagus triangle of Terlano, Vilpiano and Settequerce in the local restaurants and at the Asparagus Festival at the end of April. Furthermore there's an interesting experience programme which includes asparagus bike tours, asparagus-themed walks, the Asparagus Queen, visits to the asparagus farmer and yoga in the asparagus field.
