Fondue Festival (May 17-19)

The most charming season of the year brings to the Castle of Saint Andrews, a program that enhances the regional gastronomic culture and brings fondues exclusive and harmonized with wines from the Serra Gaúcha.
The Fondue Festival also includes an exclusive experience of regional wines at the award-winning Gourmet Winery of the Castle, and will be attended by a specialist for presentation on the manufacturing process of labels and special tastings.
The Gourmet Winery at Saint Andrews Castle is internationally recognized and awarded. There are hundreds of labels around the world that are constantly being renewed. There is a strict curation, developed by our sommelier, to enrich of novelties and rarities in the winery, following trends and demands of the customers.

The word "fondue" is a female flexion for the verb "to melt," something like "melted" or "melted". It is said that the origin of the plate is Swiss and that it was created during the Second War, due to the impossibility of the peasants of the mountain regions to seek food in the cities because of the war and the low temperature. The first fondue recipe is documented in a recipe book written in Zurich in 1699. The 320-year-old dish has become Switzerland's national symbol and is always a great way to warm up the cold days.
On May 18, we will have a special dinner at the award-winning Primrose Restaurant, consisting of a sequence of 4 different fondues, harmonized by 4 wine glasses from the Serra Gaúcha. Check out the complete menu prepared by chef Fernando Becker:
