Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol wine
The Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol area is an autonomous region located in north-east Italy producing wine in the two provinces of Trentino and South Tyrol. This Italian wine region is noted for the distinct German and Austrian influences on the wine industry due to the region's long history under the rule of Austria-Hungary and Holy Roman Empires.
Because of its unique history and location within the southern Alps and Dolomites, the Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol grows a wide range of grape varieties that are not usually seen in other parts of Italy. These include Müller-Thurgau, Schiava, Lagrein, Sylvaner, Riesling (known locally as Riesling Renano) and Gewürztraminer (known locally as Traminer Aromatico).
