Wines of Alto Adige

Alto Adige DOC

Alto Adige DOC is in the northernmost part of Italy, where German is the main language. It is home to Europe's highest vineyards sitting as high as 1,100 metres. These high altitudes help to preserve high acidity in the grape, resulting in cold-climate Italian wines with an unmatched taste.

This country produces award-winning red wines, such as Lagrein - dark, lean, crisp and sharp. Pinot Noir, the classic grape of Burgundy, has also found a new home in the high vineyards of Alto Adige. It is used to make delicate wines with aromas of red-fruits and flavours of vanilla and spice from ageing in oak.

Alto Adige is equally famous for its refreshing white wines, including beautifully perfumed and aromatic Gewürztraminer and Weißburgunder - or Pinot Blanc.
