The localities along the South Tyrolean Wine Road offer perfect conditions for the production of high quality wines, among them the autochthonous Santa Maddalena and the Gewürztraminer

Lagrein and Vernatsch, Kalterersee Auslese and Santa Maddalena: for 8,000 years already, people have cultivated vines, and the Wine Road is South Tyrol's stronghold of wine production. Did you know that with approx. 900 ha Appiano is the largest wine-growing community of South Tyrol? In comparison, the provincial capital Bolzano is in third place with approx. 510 ha of vines. The second largest wine-growing community in South Tyrol, on the other hand, is Caldaro with about 700 ha.
