Culturonda Wine in Valle Isarco
The new cultural guide Culturonda® Wine opens up twelve routes to wine culture in South Tyrol.
South Tyrol is a tiny wine region in Italy, the world’s largest wine producing country, and enjoys a quality profile way out of proportion to its size. 20 grape varieties
thrive in a small area and the resulting wines consistently scoop top international awards. Vernatsch, Lagrein and Gewürztraminer
even originated in South Tyrol. Wine has been made here since prehistoric times. Culturonda® Wine delves into South Tyrol’s wine culture, its traditions and history from twelve perspectives – from mastery to savoir vivre.
Culturonda® Wine comprises twelve themes: vinescape and architecture, terroir and the grape varieties which originated in South Tyrol, vine trellising and winemaking methods, the history of wine in South Tyrol, the role of vineyard-owning monasteries, fine dining and art, humorous wine legends and experiencing wine with all the senses.
Each Culturonda® Wine theme
is accompanied by three specific recommendations
: for example wine travellers find out why winegrowing in South Tyrol is such a patchwork and what it all has to do with the Törggelen
or wine imps. It recommends the best events at which wine in general and particular varieties can be tasted. A
map is included to assist you to plan and combine your routes individually.
