The wines of the Valle Isarco have a "reputation like thunder", says wine journalist Martin Kilchmann in his book "Wine Culture South of the Alps". However, only "in Italy". In Germany, these sought-after wines are hardly known. This is not due to their quality. It's more the varieties that are found here: Sylvaner, Kerner, Riesling, Müller-Thurgau. These are not the wines one associates with Italy, not even with South Tyrol. But it's worth stopping off now and then on the way south before Bolzano and dropping in on one or more of the now very numerous Eisacktal producers. You can't go wrong here, because everyone makes very good wine in his or her own way, and you'll find some of Italy's best white wines at the top producers.
