/EIN News/ -- Kerner
This frost-resistant grape thrives in the high-altitude vineyards of Valle Isarco and Val Venosta. Originally from Germany, this fruity, floral, and spicy wine is quickly becoming a signature variety for the region.

Grüner Veltliner
Unlike Gruner’s widespread fame in Austria, the variety is concentrated in the sweeping terrain of Valle Isarco. Here, just a handful of producers focused on its cultivation give this normally easy sipper a bit of swagger.

Müller-Thurgau
This hybrid grape that counts Riesling and Madeleine Royale as its parents can showcase floral and nutty notes, as well as an essence of baking spice. It can be insipid in other regions, but the cool climate of Alto Adige ensures it develops bright acid and a lively personality.

Moscato Giallo
If the name wasn’t a tipoff, this grape from the Muscat family is delectably sweet, but it can be vinified both dry — which brings out an elegant spice character — and as a dessert wine. Thought to have been brought over by the Romans in 15 B.C., it happily grows in the region’s warmer sites.

Sylvaner
Originally from Austria, this thick-skinned grape made its way through Germany and other parts of Central Europe before settling in Valle Isarco. Savory, herbaceous and mineral-rich, these full-bodied whites age beautifully.
