DOC area (also South Tyrol, Italian Alto Adige or dell'Alto Adige) for red wines, rosé wines and white wines in the Italian wine-growing area of South Tyrol. It is divided into six sub-zones, which are considered DOC areas in their own right and do not include the entire product range under this name, but only certain types of wine. These are Bozner Leiten (Colli di Bolzano in Italian), Eisacktaler (Valle Isarco), Meraner Hügel (Meranese di Collina), St. Magdalener (Santa Maddalena ), Terlaner (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 (Italian: 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.

The German emperors who went to Rome for their coronation got to know and appreciate South Tyrolean wine on their travels. A decline...

Synonyms are Blauer Lagrein, Burgundi Lagrein, Lagarino, Lagrain, Lagrino, Lagroin and Landschwarze. A "Red Lagrein" (wine) is mentioned 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 from 1318 refers to a white wine. Until the 18th century, "Lagreiner" usually meant a white wine.
