DOC area (also South Tyrol, ital. Alto Adige or dell'Alto Adige) for red wines, rosé wines and white wines in the Italian wine growing area South Tyrol. There are six sub-zones, which are regarded as separate DOC areas and under this name do not cover the entire product range, but only certain types of wine. These are Bozner Leiten (Italian: Colli di Bolzano), Valle Isarco, Merano hills (Meranese di Collina), St. Magdalene (Santa Maddalena), Terlano (Terlano) and Vinschgau (Valle Venosta).

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.

The Greeks brought many of their grape varieties with them and named the ideal land for...

The red grape variety comes from Trentino-Alto Adige(Italy). The name probably derives from the Valle Lagarina in Trentino. Synonyms are Blauer Lagrein, Burgundi Lagrein, Lagrain, Lagrino, Lagroin and Landschwarze. A "Red Lagrein" (wine) is named by the Tyrolean peasant leader Michael Gaismair (1490-1532) around 1525. However, the earliest mention of a Lagrein variety in a document from Gries near Bolzano dating from 1318 refers to a white wine. Until the 18th century, the term "Lagreiner" was usually used to refer to a white wine. However, its identity is not clear, as it could have been Savagnin Blanc(Traminer) or Lagarino...
