WineCultureWeeks in San Paolo

The WineCultureWeeks between July and August are a first class wine event, taking place in the historic alleys of San Paolo

With an overall area of 1,050 hectares, Appiano is known as the biggest wine growing village of South Tyrol. Here, every year on 10 days between the end of July and the beginning of August, the WineCultureWeeks take place. It is a wine event and enogastronomical festival dedicated to wine and to Alpine-Mediterranean specialities. The historic alleys of the charming wine village of San Paolo Appiano, surrounded by vineyards, are the perfect scenery for a highly attractive selection of events, including culinary evenings, theme walks and tastings of South Tyrolean wine.

Among the highlights there are the legendary Big Bottle Party, the Dumpling Day with a great variety of dumplings made by local farm women, and the Wine Tour of San Paolo. The crowning event is the "Great Gourmet Event" under the stars, when starred chef Herbert Hintner creates gourmet dishes, which are served on a 120 metres long table in the historic alleys of San Paolo. The tickets are limited and much sought-after! Another wine event in Appiano is celebrated after the vintage in October. In Cornaiano, "The Last Load of Grapes" is brought to the village centre and the grapes are pressed right there using an old wine press.
