Veltliner is grown in the Val d’Isarco and has aromas of flowers and herbs.
The white wine grape Veltliner dates back to Roman times. In the 18th century, it was cultivated in Austria under the name “Grüner Muskateller”. In South Tyrol, Veltliner is grown in the Val d’Isarco. It does not require a particularly fertile soil, even though it prefers loess and residual soil. Its blossoms are sensitive to temperature changes and in autumn Veltliner grapes need very long sunny periods.
Veltliner yields wines of many different styles. It can be either drunk young, as so-called “new wine“, which is light and tangy, whereas its late vintage can also produce full-bodied wines, capable of long ageing. It is greenish/pale yellow in colour and has aromas of flowers and herbs. Grüner Veltliner is peppery, spicy and fruity. It is excellent accompanied with fish, meat and soft cheese and can also be served as an aperitif.
