Wine

The localities along the South Tyrolean Wine Road offer perfect conditions for the production of high quality wines such as 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. 1,100 ha Appiano is the largest wine-growing community of South Tyrol? In comparison, the provincial capital Bolzano is in second place with 510 ha of vines.
