From 12th to 14th May 2017 the historic center of Portogruaro will be the stage of Terre dei Dogi in Festa, with stands and tasting of food and wine products in which the protagonists are the AOC wines Lison Pramaggiore and the typical products of the Eastern Veneto.
But the tastings are not only culinary: there will be also concerts, book presentations, entertainment for the youngest and excursions on the River Lemene on board of “caorline” and gondolas, the typical boats of the Venetian lagoon.
To enrich this already rich frame there will also be markets and productions with characters, goods and games of that period, and also a historical parade; the second edition of the Organic Fair „Portogruaro-Bio” will also take place on the 13th and 14th of May.
“Terre dei Dogi in festa” is a denomination that recalls the Venetian origins of Portogruaro but also the history of a territory that has always been populated by sharecroppers and farmers employed by big noble families who lived in the city and possessed vast estates in the countryside, cultivated in vineyards, maize, wheat and beets.
A reminder therefore to the origins and a rediscovery of the memory of the territory, for an event much appreciated by the vast public that every year participates and that sees the presence of almost thirty wineries and wine producers, the collaboration of several local restaurateurs, and also a hundred exhibitors.
