Wines and grape varieties

The South Tyrolean Wine Road and the Val d’Isarco offer perfect conditions for various grape varieties.

The characteristics of wine grapes and the flavours and aromas of the produced wines differ from region to region. Moreover, high-quality grapes can be used for interesting wine blends. In fact, wine productions from a mixture of several grape varieties are a big challenge for every ambitious wine producer.

The South Tyrolean Wine Road offers perfect conditions for many, but not for every grape variety. In fact, mainly some white wine grape varieties are preferably grown in the Val d’Adige, the second important wine cultivation region in South Tyrol. Moreover, various wine grapes are grown in the regions Oltradige and Bassa Atesina and there are also some vineyards in the Val Venosta.
