The power of 1% Alto Adige only accounts for 1% of wines produced in Italy, but yet for many, it is the home of the best Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc in Italy. But let's not forget about other native grapes, for example Schiava and Lagrein.
Where is Alto Adige? Alto Adige is located on the borders Austria and Switzerland, where many residents still speak German as the region has only been part of Italy since 1919. High altitudes, fertile soils, sunny weathers are the hallmarks of Alto Adige wines. Unlike the rest of Italy which has a Latin / Roman heritage, Alto Adige has a strong Austro-German cultural bonding, which allows people to see more "German / Austrian" grapes such as Riesling and Pinot Noir in the area.
