On our way we discover the unique cultural landscape between Bolzano, Appiano and Salurn. Whether in the valley, on the mountain slopes or around the provincial capital of Bolzano - South Tyrol's south is characterised by winegrowing. The region is especially known for the three original grape varieties Gewürztraminer, Vernatsch and Langrein. Gewürztraminer, a dry white wine from the wine village of Tramin on the South Tyrolean Wine Road, has conquered the whole world from here and impresses with its spicy, aromatic and pleasant taste. Vernatsch is a typical and the most widespread grape variety in the region. The light ruby red, slightly dry and fruity wine is very mild and digestible due to its low acidity and minimal tannins. The third in the bunch is Lagrein, a dark garnet-red, dry, strong and full-bodied wine that tastes slightly of violets.
On our route we pass the 16 wine-growing communities of the South Tyrolean Wine Road, where traditional but also contemporary cellar cooperatives, private wineries, wine estates, self-marketing winegrowers and winegrowers line up. Especially for wine lovers, there is much to see in the authentic and charming area full of cellars, nooks, hills and slopes. For them, it is also worth visiting one of the numerous events or diverse wine experiences, where they can taste the region s diverse wines in convivial company.
