BIKE&WINE Zenato Experience

Discovering the land of Lugana and Valpolicella on a Bike ride

A great cycling event, a 50 km route through the morainic hills and an 80 km route from Lugana to Valpolicella to discover an area extraordinarily rich in beautiful landscapes, historical monuments, excellent wine and food products, all surrounded by an amazing environment like: Lake Garda, Lake Frassino natural reserve, our Lugana vineyards, the morainic.

The Bike&Wine meeting point is at Zenato’s S. Cristina Estate in Peschiera del Garda where the two bike ride routes will start. In the meantime, at the winery, it will be possible to have wine and food tastings, cellar tours and to visit the photographic exhibition “Wine. Beyond the portrait”.

From the Estate there will also be transfers to go on boat trips to reach the walls of the Fortress of Peschiera del Garda, a Unesco heritage site, and walk routes to discover the wildlife oasis at Lago del Frassino.

Loretta Pavan as Special Guest of the event, an unwearying former entrepreneur who, after defeating breast cancer, in 2008 climbed into the saddle and since then has continued to pedal to support the Oncology Department at Vicenza’s Hospital and the "Amici del Quinto Piano".

The proceeds of the event will be donated to the project ESPS (Empathic Solidarity Psychological Service) of the "Amici del Quinto Piano", active in the Oncology Department of Vicenza Hospital.
