The taste of diversity – tasting of Alto Adige wines

The Crane Hall of the NOI Techpark in Bolzano, a completely restored industrial monument dating from the 1930s, is the setting for a whole series of tastings:
  • Preview tasting: sample special wines that are not yet available on the market.
  • Varietal tasting: experience the unique diversity of Alto Adige’s wine culture.
  • Vintage tasting: discover the special and original character of our vintages.
  • Anniversary tasting: celebrate the hundredth birthday of Santa Maddalena wines together with the consortium responsible for their conservation.

Vintner & Friends: wine culture meets dining culture

Wine and food have always gone together in Alto Adige. Nowhere can you experience this in more authentic form than with the region’s wine producers themselves, who invite you to enjoy a very personal dinner, accompanied by top local wines and the culinary secrets of our winegrowers. And, because their friends are also invited, you will also get the chance to exchange ideas with a wide variety of producers.

Wine Culture Meets Dining Culture

Saturday, 9 September
Climate, soils, varieties – the wide (mountain) range of vineyards

What characterises the wines of Alto Adige? What are their locations? And what influence do the region’s mountains have on its wines? You can best explore the secrets of the diversity of winegrowing, winemaking and wine culture in Alto Adige on a themed tour of some of the core areas of the local viticulture. You can further the knowledge gained in follow-up discussions with the winemakers – and of course by tasting their wines.

We have saved the best for last…
Alpine Legends

To finish off we will once more show you Alto Adige from its very best side. Against the impressive backdrop of the historic Firmian Castle, we will conclude the Alto Adige Wine Summit 2023 with a dinner featuring authentic Alpine cuisine and, of course, the finest local wines. And, because the mountains are the very soul of our wines, the evening offers you the opportunity to meet an Alpine legend. 
So you can look forward to a very special summit adventure!
