Trentino-Alto Adige is characterized by a very high percentage of quality wines, as much as 75% of the total production, but what strikes even more is the wide range of planted vines and types of wine produced.
In 2009, production was about 1,254,000 hl of wine, with a minimum prevalence of red.
The most cultivated grape is in fact the slave, from which, especially in the area around Lake Caldaro, wines of a rather transparent ruby ​​color are obtained, with a subtle scent of cherry and almond and a delicate structure.
But Alto Adige is known everywhere especially for its fragrant white wines, obtained from vine-symbols such as gewurztraminer, born in the vineyards around Termeno, muller-thurgau, kerner, veltliner, as well as pinot grigio and pinot bianco , chardonnay and sauvignon, to name just a few. Among the aromatic grapes we can also mention the yellow muscat and the pink muscat, which give excellent passitoes and late vintages, more or less sweet wines, but always endowed with a rich, odorous baggage and a pleasant softness.
Among the red berried vines is also experiencing an excellent moment also the native lagrein, from which you get beautiful rosé wines, but especially reds with a compact ruby ​​color, aromas of plum and violet violets on a light herbaceous background, excellent structure and well-defined tannins, even the international merlot, cabernet and pinot noir are always up to the situation, able to combine structure and elegance. In addition to exploiting an ampelographic base similar to that of Alto Agide, Trentino produces red wines mainly based on teroldego and marzemino, with features of structure and longevity different depending on the area for the former, always rather delicate and to be appreciated in youth for the second one, produced in particular in Vallagarina.
Here, too, there is no lack of fine dessert wines, above all the Holy Wine produced in the valley of the lakes by the nosiola, an indigenous white-berry vine.
Finally, but not least, one of the productions that distinguishes this region is that of classic method sparkling wines, above all based on chardonnay and only partly Pinot Noir, to which Trento DOC is entirely dedicated.

Climate and soil The climate of this region is very harsh in the winter months and cool in the summer. During the winter there are abundant and frequent snowfalls, while in spring and autumn it often rains.
History This region has two names because it is composed of two distinct regions: the southern part is Trentino which takes its name from the chief town, namely Trento, from the Latin Tridentum (old town hall) and the northern part of South Tyrol, so named because it is located in basin of the upper course of this river. South Tyrol is the German name of South Tyrol because until 1918 this region was part of the Austrian territory of Tyrol. Subsequently the region was called Venice Tridentina until 1948, when it took its current name.
Typical products The DOC Trentino includes the entire valley but each area has its own specialties and autochthonous grapes. The geological and climatic characteristics are favorable for the cultivation of almost all white vines. Among the red grapes the most cultivated is merlot, but the autochthonous ones are too much loved to be abandoned in favor of imported varieties. Teroldego Rotalino is one of the great protagonists of Italian enology. In South Tyrol, the higher, often steep and terraced vineyards, such as the Val Venosta in the north-west, and in the Isarco valley (Eisark), in the north-east, are particularly suitable for riesling, whose aroma positively affects the strong excursion the strong daytime temperature range. Terlano, on the road to Merano, is famous for sauvignon blanc.
Typical dishes Trentino cuisine is influenced by the legacy of the Italo-Venetian tradition, even though over the centuries individualities have become more and more amalgamated. A specialty of Trentino cuisine is polenta. Among the dishes we find the dumplings, large balls of stale bread kneaded with milk, eggs, bacon, luganeghe, cheese and parsley, cooked in different soups (milk, eggs) or even dry preparations, in canederli de frito, from lean and white. In Alto Adige, a century ago, the cuisine was rather heavy, affected by the German-Tyrolean heritage, but then refined, quite lightened and now more responsive to the needs of modern life. Among the local dishes, starters are few, and among these we can mention the gems gefulltes, stuffed vegetables, tomatoes, zucchini, stuffed peppers with rice and minced meat, the hirn-profesen made of slices of bread covered with one layer of cooked brains. Among the salami you can taste the famous speck, obtained from the legs of pork, which are boned and seasoned with salt, garlic, saltpeter, juniper, bay, pepper, aromatic herbs and smoking, using sweet wood and fresh juniper bushes. Among the desserts there are krapfen and krapfen alla tirolese, with flour, olive oil, cream, eggs, jam and a splash of brandy. Follow the kastaniantorte, typical of the Bolzano area, made with crushed boiled chestnuts, mixed with flour, butter and sugar, apricot sknodels with sugar, grilled bread, potatoes, butter, flour and eggs.
