The Wine Consortium of Alto Adige (Sudtirol) has launched a new series of five guided treks for lovers of Nature, gastronomy and wine cultivation. The five wein.weg (wine routes) lead through some of the area's most celebrated beauty spots as well as vineyards that produce the region's most celebrated wines.
The Oltradige wine walk lasts three hours. It takes in the famous Lake of Caldaro and leads through apple orchards and vineyards. Wine Tastings on route included.
The Gewurztraminer Track: through the vineyards of this autochthonous DOC rose-skinned “spice” grape, popular since the XII century.
Lagundo Track: the Waalweg (Paths of Water) following the beds of the ancient irrigation canals (rogge) that once guaranteed water for the vines.
The Via Vinum: classic excursionist route in Val Venosta, includes dropping in to the farms of local wine producers for a drink and a chat.
Terlano, the Wine Route of the DOC Terlaner vineyards and the prize asparagus fields.
