Ancient viticultural centre of the Val Venosta.
The little village of Vezzano, place of about 400 inhabitants in the municipality of Silandro, rises at the foot of the Monte Mezzodì, the most sunny area of the medium and lower Val Venosta valley. Thanks to its favourable position and the debris cone on which the village rises, Vezzano boasts a long tradition in the field of vine-growing, which dates back to the 12th century, thanks also to the dedication of the Black Monks of the Monte Maria convent in Burgusio.
Beside the classic international wines, also an autochtonous type is mentioned to have been cultivated in this place, which is the “Fraueler” or “Vezzaner”. Of this type of grapevine, a white wine is produced that is drunken rather young, really tasty.
Worth mentioning is also the S. Nicola church, even if recently it had to be reshaped due to a rockfall. Nevertheless it boasts a series of artistic and architectonic testimonies of a long history, starting from the Romanesque church steeple.
