It is one of the long-established local grape varieties and plays an important role in South Tyrolean viticulture: the autochthonous Vernatsch is the focus of the "Culinary Spring Weeks" from March 23 to April 8, 2023 along the South Tyrolean Wine Road from Nals/Nalles to Salorno/Salurn and in the wine city of Bolzano. This fruity red wine is typical of Lake Kaltern and of St. Magdalena near Bolzano/Bozen. With its floral notes of violets and fresh berries, it shines as an all-rounder in food pairings.
Spring for the palate: this is what the 38 selected gastronomic establishments along the South Tyrolean Wine Road offer. For more than three weeks, the menus of these gastronomic establishments will feature special spring recipes that go well with the autochthonous Schiava. What’s more? Around 41 wineries and vineyards offer more than 60 food labels of excellence for pairings.
But that's not all: those who want to take a look behind the scenes of Schiava will have the opportunity to learn all about the history and production of the famous grape variety during a varied program.
