South Tyrolean winemaking – three autochthonous wines

Wine is synonymous with South Tyrolean culture and passion, and our local varieties truly are ambassadors of the region. The three grape varieties autochthonous – the term used to denote a grape variety that grows in the area it comes from – to South Tyrol are Vernatsch (also known as Schiava), Lagrein and Gewürztraminer. For decades, the high-yield Vernatsch was the dominant grape in the area. Lagrein was vinted as both dark and rosé wines, while Gewürztraminer almost fell into obscurity at the end of the 19th century. Fifteen years ago, however, the region’s winegrowers reflected anew upon the original varieties and Lagrein has now become a symbol of the new South Tyrolean reds.
