Cortaccia Instructional Wine Trail
With the instructional wine trails, both the province of Alto Adige and Alto Adige wine can be discovered either on your own or with the assistance of people who are familiar both with the particular location and its wine. Every Wednesday in the spring, summer, and autumn, for example, there is a guided “scents and tastes hike” on the Cortaccia Instructional Wine Trail on which both wine connoisseurs and those interested in winegrowing can hear and see more about the history of the winegrowing region and taste the typical wines of the Bassa Atesina. All those who would like to travel alone on the “path through the life of the vines” begin their hike in the center of the village of Cortaccia and move through the vineyards as far as Niclara. The so-called Saltnerpratze, a wooden hand that used to be a sign of the presence of the vineyard watchman, serves as the signpost. There are numerous stops which provide a view into the most important events of the winegrowing year, information on grape varieties and growth training systems, and even the possibility to sniff the different scents of the wines.
