Wine areaThe reputation of the South Tyrolean wines on the Italian and international market is due to the conscientious care of the vineyards, the use of quality vines, the first class winery work, and last but not least, the extraordinary soil and climatic conditions.
As in all wine areas of the world, the landscape leaves its mark on the character of the wine. Due to the climate, the majority of the vineyards can be found on the warm slopes of the Etsch and Eisack Valleys between Schlanders and Salurn and Bozen and Brixen. The pergola and the arched cane systems used to grow the vines, mean that sunshine and warmth are optimal, and they give the landscape its attractive character.
