All lovers of this area know the beauty of the South Tyrolean vineyards. The Valle Isarco offers one of the most beautiful natural landscapes of South Tyrol, characterized by majestic mountains, ancient farmsteads, castles and monasteries and several villages, magnificent chestnut groves and especially terraced vineyards, with their neat stone walls. People are used to working on predominantly steep terrain, maintaining and caring for even the smallest vineyards up to 950m above sea level. Above all it is right this variety that needs respect and keeps alive the attachment to an absolutely unique nature. While passing through Chiusa, you cannot miss the Cantina Valle Isarco, which since 1961 has brought together the producers of the area, who now are about one hundred and thirty. The winery is suitable for aromatic and fruity whites. The particular microclimate, characterized by hot summer days and cold nights during the harvest period, guarantees fresh and fruity wines that has lots of mineral content. The soil gives the white wines a great character, texture and unparalleled elegance. It is no coincidence that the wine growers of the Valle Isarco specialized in the cultivation of white grapes. Only three of the nine white wines produced by the Cantina Valle Isarco come exclusively from the D.O.C. area to the south of the Valle Isarco and bear the Denomination of Controlled Origin "Alto Adige D.O.C.": Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay, Sauvignon; all the others can instead bear the Denomination "Alto Adige Valle Isarco D.O.C". At the end of the journey, take home the bottles of the prestigious Aristos line, including the Riesling, with its subtle hint of fruit, and the Müller Thurgau (it won the first place in the international competition for Müller Thurgau wines in Val di Cembra) with its dry, fresh flavour and intense aroma, perfect for grilled fish and light appetizers for aperitifs. If you are an expert of South Tyrolean wines, you will also appreciate the Kerner, Sylvaner and Traminer Aromatico. Among the reds, a robust Lagrein stands out.
