Viticulture has got a long tradition in Caldaro and surroundings

Caldaro and surroundings is characterised by a long wine growing tradition. In Caldaro, there is also the only wine museum of its kind in South Tyrol. This museum provides interesting information about viticulture tradition. Moreover an educational trail demonstrates early methods of vinegrowing.

However, the most important grape variety is the Vernatsch. It is the most important grape variety in South Tyrol, as it covers about 60% of the cultivation area, whereas white wines Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay cover about 15%.

Of course also in this wine growing area, climate and soil are decisive for cultivation and also characterise the taste of different wines.
