“Terre dei Dogi in Festa” (the “Land of the Doges” celebration) is a food and wine event in Eastern Veneto that takes place on the first weekend in May in Portogruaro old town centre. A starring role goes to Lison-Pramaggiore wines, which are accompanied by the cuisine, traditions and culture of Portogruaro. The idea behind the “Land of the Doges” is to blend the Venetian influences on the town of Portogruaro with the traditional food and wine of the surrounding countryside.
Highlights of the event include tasting fine wines along the main street in town, trips on the Lemene River in traditional “caorlina” boats, concerts and entertainment for youngsters. It reaches a climax with a re-enactment of a doge’s parade in Piazza della Repubblica. The initiative is organized in partnership with the Lison-Pramaggiore DOC Wine Association, the Lison-Pramaggiore DOC Wine Route, the Venice Wine Forum, and a number of business and trade associations.
Meet the guide in front of the City Hall at 3pm and start the tour of the historic center of Portogruaro. The tour will conclude with an aperitif in the venue of Enoclub Portogruaro. There will be food and wine stands and wine tastings in the streets of the town centre throughout the day.
