The northern area of the Italian double region Trentino-South Tyrol; the southern area is Trentino. The Italian name is Alto Adige. It corresponds geographically to the Autonomous Province of Bolzano (Ital. Bolzano). The Rhaeto-Romans planted the first vineyards here as early as 1,000 BC, making South Tyrol one of the oldest German-speaking wine-growing regions. Here the Romans learned from the Celts how to use wooden wine barrels for storage and transport. In the Middle Ages, viticulture reached its peak. The German emperors, who went to Rome for their coronation, got to know and appreciate South Tyrolean wine on their travels. A decline...

Italy is one of the oldest wine-growing countries, the beginnings go back at least to before 1,000 BC. It was at this time that the Etruscans appeared in central Italy, settling areas in the four regions of today's Abruzzo, Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria.

The most important ones grouped alphabetically by country are Savagnin Rose Aromatique (Australia); Mala Dinka (Bulgaria); Clevner, Klevner, Rother Muskattraminer, Roter Traminer, Traminer Rot (Germany); Bon...

The white grape variety probably comes from Italy. Synonyms are Culupuntu, Fior d'Arancio, Golden Muscatel, Moscatello di Vico, Muscato Armeno, Moscato Cipro, Moscato dalla Siria, Moscato di Pasqua, Moscato di Terrracina, Moscato Giallo (second main name), Moscato Sirio, Moscato Siro, Moscato Tardivo, Muscadeddu, Muscat du Pays (Switzerland), Muscatedda (Sicily), Muscat Italy, Muscato de Goloio, Muscat Vert and Muscat Zuti (Croatia).
