South Tyrolean Wine Road Weeks
Several small and large spring events in different localities on the Wine Road focus on wine.
In 2007 the association South Tyrolean Wine Road came up with a very special idea. Once a year there should be a bombastic event that reconciles all localities on the South Tyrolean Wine Road. Every single village anyhow has to contribute to this event. On the one hand this is kind of active competition, on the other hand the cooperation of different localities on the Wine Road is promoted.
The “South Tyrolean Wine Road Weeks” are organised in spring, a season in which at least one event in each village focuses on wine. Experience a comparison of wines from Sicily and Termeno or a champagne breakfast at the Castello di Salorno. Of course also lectures and introductions into the method of dégustation are offered, which teaches you how to classify wines. Moreover there is the day of organic viticulture.
The highligt of the festival is, however, the “Winery night”, taking place in the last evening of the festival. In this night wineries from Nalles to Salorno open their gates and offer noble wines as well as attractive culinary events.
