Every year in Bolzano there is a series of events aimed at exploring the best wines.
This event has been organised for more than 100 years now. The first spring wine market of Bolzano took place from March 12 to 22, 1896 in the wine tavern of the Torgglhaus in Bolzano. About 160 types of wine were tasted and compared.
In these times wine was very important for the monarchy, thus also the grapevine area was twice as large as today. The idea to organise a wine market has been repeatedly taken up after the WWs. In fact, this event was of utmost importance to winegrowers. This wine market trasformed into the so-called event “Bozner Weinkost” (Bolzano Wine Tasting), which every year is organised in Bolzano.
