Schloss Salurn – Castel Salorno also known as Haderburg dominates the valley from a close to vertical face of the mountain. From this advantageous position it keeps an eye on the entrance to Südtirol – Alto Adige, the Salurner Klause – Chiusa di Salurno, and constantly monitors the wine path.
A grill shaped vine-growing landscape crosses the Margreid – Magrè town, where the Italian architecture meets the German gothic style. The four hundred years old “Alte Rebe” vine, covers the entire façade of the estate. Over two hundred days of sun benefit the growth of a close to Mediterranean vegetation and facilitate viticulture.
In Kurtatsch – Cortaccia the main country houses remind you of the past presence of aristocratic farmer families. The most noble winery of the whole of Südtirol – Alto Adige – South Tyrol belongs to the “Turmhof” castle wine cellar. The wine path passes by a grapevine landscape where hikers can witness the “Lebensweg” – “il cammino della vita” – the life path of wine, from the implantation of the vine shoot to the wine tasting moment.
The Castelfeder – Castelvetere hill overlooks the village of Auer – Ora and wraps up the surroundings with a mystical aura. A deep gorge cuts the Alpine landscape in two, the canyon of the “Bletterbach” geological park takes you through an adventurous journey through time and back to the beginning of the earth’s evolution.
Down in the valley, the wine route carries on until Tramin – Termeno, the town of origin of the “Gewürztraminer”. Roses, Lychees, sour oranges and marzipan – these are the flavours of the south of Südtirol – Alto Adige – South Tyrol.
