20 different wine varietals thrive in South Tyrol over an area of 5,300 hectares. These produce 350,000 hectolitres of wine a year, which 5,000 wine farmers deliver to 160 local wineries. Done with the number crunching, we'll come to the point.
High mountain peaks protect Meraner Land holiday region from the cold north wind. The climate around here has much in common with a Mediterranean climate. Grapes ripen on sunny slopes and develop their charismatic intensity. Some vineyards may be found as high up as 550 metres above sea level, as every varietal has its own preferred location and the Vernatsch varietal displays a mixture of mild bitter almond spice and fruit aroma. Vernatsch wine is very much associated with the area around Meran, along with Pinot Noir and Merlot, which also thrive around here. The Großvernatsch grape, also known as the 'spa grape of Meran', is not only famed for its tasty fruit, but contains a wealth of important vitamins and salts used in the 'Meran grape treament'.
At ALPIANA RESORT these regional wines may be found alongside fine wines from further afield on the carefully selected wine list. ALPIANA Wine Bar gives guests a chance to taste choice wines on a regular basis.
