Event Description

Alto Adige is one of Italy’s smallest winegrowing regions with only just over 13,000 acres but the region varies enough to boast seven distinct growing sub-regions and thanks to this geographical position, it is also one of the most multifaceted and diverse. What emerges here are not trendy wines, but rather authentic wines with their own original character.


Vineyards in Alto Adige creep up the sides of steep glacial valleys in horizontal rows with the dramatic backdrop of the breath-taking Dolomite Mountains. The winery estates here are commonly called “Schloss” which is the German word for castle/chateau and as the land is so fragmented across steep valley slopes there are many excellent co-operatives (or Cantina in Italian) that produce stunning wines that are also keenly priced. The gorgeous city of Bolzano is smack-bang in the centre of Alto Adige and has some of the most amazing scenery.

With our changing climate, more and more winemakers are searching for cooler climates to produce wines in and Alto-Adige fits this profile perfectly with its elevation and cooling mountain breezes, these really are some of the coolest wines on the planet.
