Wine

The localities along the South Tyrolean Wine Road offer perfect conditions for the production of quality wines.

A fermented juice of grapes, that’s how this semiluxury food is described to those who are not really familiar with this noble beverage. Already 8,000 years ago people cultivated vine and of course also indulged in the the pleasure of drinking it.
Since the beginning of the 20th century the production of wine was increasingly gaining importance with many people along the South Tyrolean Wine Road.

How grape vines should be grown, the wine be produced and this noble beverage be enjoyed is of utmost importance (not only) to farmers and cellarers along the South Tyrolean Wine Route. All of them place great value on a good result and all of them are experts in their job.

By the way, did you know that Appiano on the Wine Road is the locality that features the largest area of vineyards in South Tyrol, which is 1,100 hectares. Bolzano lies second, featuring 510 hectares, which corresponds to one-tenth of the total vine cultivation area.
