Alto Adige, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, mountain traditions and viticulture


Thanks to its extraordinary natural elements – mountains, lakes, pastures – the Alto Adige region sparks a sense of purity and well-being, as well as the desire to enjoy good and natural food. This is a land that has always practiced a circular economy, which places man and respect for nature at the center, often by following biological and biodynamic practices.

Thanks to the different microclimates present, international grape varieties like Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet yield wines endowed with character and elegance. Native varieties Lagrein and Schiava embody the peculiarities of this territory. And the rare Moscato Rosa, vinified as a red wine, brings forth curious pairings.

The typical Alto Adige cuisine has garnered numerous Michelin stars. Many dishes were inspired by the Habsburg cuisine that reveals traces of contact with Italy, like gnocchi and barley soups. Exquisite cheeses like Graukase and Stanga di Dobbiaco are served with potatoes cultivated in the mountains, speck and kaminwurzen, small sausages made from lean pork and beef, and are smoked and air-dried. Traditional pastry-making is influenced by nearby Austria featuring Krapfen, Strauben and delicious Strudel stuffed with the famous apples from Alto Adige.

    Private guided winery tour at Lageder

    Passion for winegrowing, biodynamics, innovation and the union of art and wine are values that have always guided the Lageder family.

    The Alois Lageder Winery is located in Magrè, along the famous Alto Adige Wine Road. It is a small, ancient town that has been well-preserved. The building’s façade features a centenary vine, planted in 1601. A sight that you must not miss.

    The Lageder family’s philosophy is founded on biodynamics and the circular economy, but it also embraces experimentation and research, encouraging a continuous interaction between nature and man.

    The winery features three main lines: Classical Grape Varieties, Compositions and Masterpieces. But we should also mention the Comets, truly unique and exceptional limited-edition wines.

    The tour includes a guided visit of the Tòr Löwengang Estate and of the ageeing cellar.

  • Day 1: Lunch

    Fine dining lunch

    The Lageder family offers you the chance to pair their wines with excellent local dishes at Vineria Paredeis, located just near the cellar. In summer, enjoy lunch in the outdoor area adorned with majestic vines; in winter, cozy up indoors and be welcomed by the warmth of the fireplace.

  • Day 1: Afternoon

    Private guided winery tour at Kettmeir

    South Tyrolean enologist Giuseppe Kettmeir, an expert in viticulture and an agronomist engineer, founded the homonymous winery in 1919.
    Caldaro, immersed in the South Tyrolean vineyards, soon became the heart of the production of quality wines.

    In 1964, Kettmeir began producing sparkling wines using the Charmat method which contributed to the revival of the local sparkling wine tradition.

    The winery took on a new challenge, beginning to produce sparkling wine using the Classic Method in 1992. This became the most complex, elegant and distinctive of Kettmeir's production.

    The visit to the cellar ends with a tasting of 5 of the most representative wines of Kettmeir.
