Alto Adige

Alto Adige, located in the northernmost part of Italy, is renowned worldwide for its exceptional wines. Nestled amidst the extraordinary alpine landscape, the Terraced vineyards experience a unique climate, marked by brisk Mediterranean breezes interspersed with chillier Alpine winds. This helps cultivate vintages with an extraordinary blend of Italian elegance and Alpine strength.

Alto Adige, known for its astonishing varietal diversity, is a paradise for wine connoisseurs. The region's wine is defined by its finesse, structure, and its unique ability to express both the vineyard’s terroir and the individual wine-maker’s flair. With approximately twenty different varietals being grown, the area is a rich tapestry of distinguished wines, each bearing the smoky mineral characteristic that the soils of the Dolomite mountains bestow.

From crisp, aromatic whites such as Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio or Gewürztraminer to robust reds like Lagrein and Schiava, every wine from this region is a treat to the senses. The elegant Pinot Noir of Alto Adige is particularly celebrated for its fruit-driven character with hints of cherry, raspberry, and a subtle earthy undertone.

Possessing some of the most stringent quality control measures in Italy, the region primarily produces under the Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) status, guaranteeing a wine’s origin and adherence to specific production methods. For consumers, this represents a guarantee of quality and authenticity.

Whether sipped on its own or paired with the local, hearty South Tyrolean cuisine, Alto Adige wines unveil a symphony of flavours, unforgettable to any wine lover. From the steep mountain vineyards where the grapes are handpicked, to the tall, wafting wine glasses, there is undoubtedly an element of pure delight and satisfaction associated with every sip of Alto Adige wine. This minuscule wine region, with its unique microclimate, reflective soils, and commitment to quality, firmly establishes its status as one of Italy’s most exciting and distinguished wine regions.
