Wine Tasting and Wine Culture: the South Tyrol Wine Road
Oltradige and the surroundings of Bolzano offer fine wines and an age-old wine culture. In fact, 83 per cent of South Tyrol’s total winegrowing surface area is located within these two districts. The area’s red wines, like Merlot and Lagrein, and whites such as Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay are absolutely exquisite. There are a number of options for learning more about South Tyrol’s wine culture ranging from a visit during Wine Culture Weeks in San Paolo to the wine trail itself, which is open throughout the year.
