Grape cure

Originating in Merano, after more than one hundred years of practice, still today the grape cure is very popular in South Tyrol.

Grapes are not only a tasty treat for your palate, but also a recognised remedy due to its biologic qualities. Suitable for grape cures are the Großvernatsch grape of Merano, its sugar content is between 14 and 20%. Also organic acids such as volatile acidity, citric acid and mineral salts are contained in the grapes. This unique constellation is completed by a series of vitamins.

The grape cure consists of a daily feed of 300 - 1,000 g of grapes, distributed over two meals, one in the morning on empty stomach (also as freshly squeezed juice), another before a modest dinner, or in the afternoon. After eating, we recommend a short walk. Grape cure does not only mean that you exclusively have to eat grapes. In various wellness facilities in South Tyrol, also body wraps with grape cures, baths with fresh grape juice and back massages with grape oil are offered.
