South Tyrolean cellarmen and farmers take care of the cultivation of vineyards as well as the production of high-quality wines.

The perfect combination of rainfall, light and well aerated soils that are easily heated by the warming sun-rays, and many sunshine hours are the best prerequisites for the cultivation of wine in South Tyrol. The local wines are known beyond borders - the famous Gewürztraminer, an aromatic wine grape variety, for instance, owes its name to the village of Termeno (Tramin, in German), located in the surroundings of beautiful Lake Caldaro.
