    Northern Italy

    The Wines of Alto Adige/Südtirol with May Matta-Aliah

    The Wines of Alto Adige/Südtirol with May Matta-Aliah

    Abstract:

    Two languages spoken side by side is only one of the many unique characteristics of this stunning wine region, formerly a part of Austria, and since 1919, a part of Italy. Today it embraces the best of both
    cultures and languages but identifies as purely South Tyrolean.
     
    Nestled in the northeastern part of the country, in the shadow of the dramatic Dolomite Mountain peaks, Italy’s northernmost wine region enjoys a perfect balance between the brisk Alpine air and the Mediterranean sun. Here, beautiful high-altitude, terraced vineyards are set against a backdrop of snow-covered mountains where aromatic grape varieties thrive in the long sunny growing season.
     
    Join May Matta-Aliah, Regional Ambassador, to learn what makes this small jewel of a wine region capable of producing the highest percentage of DOC/DOP wines in the country.
