Wine Ambassador at an Elevation of 2,000 Meters

Ski Instructors become Wine Experts This Winter

The fun of skiing, and interesting wine knowledge and wine tastings to boot. How does that sound to you? It will be possible this winter in Alta Badia. As a result of the extensive training of the ski instructors, the wine culture and ski culture are moving even closer together.

Within the framework of the initiative of the Consortium of Alto Adige Wine, Alta Badia, and the local ski schools, the "Ski Wine Ambassador" project is being launched this year. In this course, the ski instructors will be specifically trained on the topic of wine by professional sommeliers of the Alto Adige Sommelier Association. Everything from the basics of wine tasting to the differences and characteristics of Alto Adige wines will be included.

This combination of landscape, skiing, and dining and oenological experiences is unique. So ski lovers and winter holidaymakers in Alta Badia can look forward to a winter that is both exciting and educational.

Here are some other events within the theme of wine and skiing enjoyment that you should not miss this winter in Alta Badia:
