The main ingredient for the local wines: South Tyrolean sun
The mild climate in the area of Merano/Meran and surroundings not only favors wonderful holidays in South Tyrol, but is also the most important ingredient for the fine wines that originate from the region. The local grapes have a very special character which is ideal for wine production.
Many recent awards, in fact, have shown South Tyrol to be one of Italy’s foremost wine regions, with many new, creative vintners coming to prominence in the last decade. The offer is varied and ranges from intense Blauburgunder to flowery Chardonnay and, in particular, Cabernet grapes rich in character, as well as special products such as the “Sisi” dessert wine. The vacation paradise of South Tyrol is fast becoming a pilgrimage site for wine lovers.
