Indulge in the pleasure of wine
> Of course in the 15 localities located along the Wine Road, there a large number of events in which the noble beverage takes centre stage. For more information see “Wine events”.
> If you would like to fully enjoy the bouquet of each wine, you should pay attention on the temperature of the wine when serving:
> Red wines with elegant body: 12-14°C
> Red wines with distictive body: 14-16°C
> Strong red wines: 16-18°C
> White wines: 8-10°C
> Dessert wines: 5- 6°C
> Rosé: 10-12°C
> Sparking wines: 6-8°C
> Gewürztraminer, Kalterersee and Lagrein, these are the three most typical types of wine for the south of South Tyrol. These types of wine are autochtonous wines and are very common in this area.
> Large wineries offer guided tours in spring, summer and autumn on a regular basis. Some tourist offices include these tours in their weekly programme, otherwise just ask directly at the wineries.
Much more personal is a visit to one of the wineries of farmers who themselves produce the wine. Particularly young farmers are glad to inform you about their work.
> Wine ride: A very special ride takes place in the localites on the Wine Road. A small bus takes you in six different wineries, where you can taste different quality wines as well as enjoy a five-course degustation menu. Also a short hike across the vineyards is included.
