The wine-growing tradition of Girlan, a small village near Bolzano with 2,800 inhabitants, has been documented since the Middle Ages. In the meantime, some of the best wineries in South Tyrol can be found there. Roland Brunner introduces them and their wines.

The region of South Tyrol is one of the top wine-growing areas in Italy in terms of quality. Certainly: Piedmont has Barolo, Barbaresco and many other wine jewels, Tuscany offers Brunello di Montalcino and outstanding Chianti. But a variety of independent, high-quality wines spread across the entire region, as South Tyrol currently has to offer, is something special. This diversity is what makes South Tyrol so appealing, but it is often difficult for wine lovers without insider knowledge to understand. Our irregularly published overview articles offer a remedy: they present the best producers of the sub-regions of South Tyrol in alphabetical order - this time from the historic wine village of Girlan.
