A Brief of South Tyrol’s Wine Heritage
South Tyrol has a winemaking tradition that dates back to 3000 years, says Suditrol Wein. Wine vessels, grape seeds, and assorted winemaking equipment are some evidence that proves the region has long been the source of wine.
Its rich history led to countless native grapes unique to the area. The region benefits from a unique combination of favorable climate, fertile soil, and excellent sun exposure, making it ideal for vine cultivation.
