In Italy’s northernmost winegrowing zone, the Alpine landscape dominates, bringing forth sleek, stark, and subtle white wines. The winegrowers of the Isarco Valley [Eisack Valley] create pure, balanced white wines in the international format, in so doing proving that in spite of physical barriers, this region of Alto Adige with its primitive rock soils of quartz and mica are excellently suited for winegrowing. The Sylvaner and Müller Thurgau grape varieties produce fresh, mineral-rich, and above all drinkable wines with a stimulating interplay of acidity. And for several years now, the Kerner and Riesling grape varieties from the Isarco Valley have also been astonishing experts from the field with top wines.
