Alto Adige radiates particular wine flair. The landscape is characterized by contrasts: the Alpine climate of the North meets the Mediterranean influences of the South, vineyards that range from valley locations up to 1,000 m (3,300 ft.) above sea level offer the ideal ground for special wines. And the passion of the winegrowers with which they pursue their profession is reflected in the quality of the wines.
On gentle summer nights, talking shop with winegrowers about their particular wines, being advised in the gourmet restaurants of Alto Adige by knowledgeable sommeliers, participating in guided tours through vineyards or visiting typical winegrowing operations – your vacation program in Alto Adige could look like that or something similar.
The numerous events in the summer are the perfect invitation to enjoy and interact. These include the “Open House at the Wineries” on June 8 with tours and tastings in the wineries around Bolzano, the event “Caldaro All in White” on June 18 at the market square in Caldaro, where the most exquisite Alto Adige white wines will be presented, Sabiona – the Isarco Valley white wine festival on June 22 in Chiusa, where this year Alto Adige sparkling wine producers will also be represented, “Gewürztraminer Wine Route” on July 5, with fine Gewürztraminers from Alto Adige and Trentino, the “Day of Appiano Wine” on July 6 – a tasting in the midst of the vineyards of Cornaiano, and much, much more. And of course, traditional events such as the Feast of St. Lawrence under the stars on August 10 at the Bolzano arcade will be on the program once again.
