White Wine, Lombardy, Trentino-Alto Adige

The Italian wine region of Alto Adige is located in the north of Italy, bordering with Switzerland spanning the two provinces of Trentino and South Tyrol, in the foothills of the Alps. Historically the region has been under the rule of Austria-Hungary and Holy Roman Empires, and the wine to this day has distinct German and Austrian influences.

The regions location in the Southern Alps and Dolomites combined with its unique history now sees the region growing a wide range of grape varieties not grown in other parts of Italy. Generally the aromatics whites like Riesling or Veltliner do very well, but are only produced in tiny quantities. Blends from multiple grapes are common, as are Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Moscato Rosa and Pinot Grigio.

Fragrant deep coloured reds and blended reds with remarkable intensity can come out of this region and some knock out Rieslings too from both small wineries and co operatives.

The region is responsible for around 2.5% of Italy’s total wine production.
