Lana isn’t only known for its famed South Tyrolean apples. Together with its surrounding villages of Burgstall/Postal, Gargazon/Gargazzone and Tscherms/Cermes, this is also a burgeoning wine-growing region.
Red and white grape varietals, such as Vernatsch, Lagrein, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc, grow on the lower slopes of the Vigiljoch mountain. During vinification, the grapes are transformed into noble wines, perfectly complementing the local South Tyrolean cuisine.
Centuries ago, wines from Lana and its surrounds were supplied to Bavarian monasteries. Still today, those same vineyards continue to thrive in the Meran basin, “nature’s amphitheatre”. Once harvested, most of the grapes are delivered to the wine cooperatives
for vinification. However, a smaller number of “Independent Winegrowers” cultivate, harvest and produce their own wines from start to finish, which they also sell independently. Come and experience South Tyrol's wine culture for yourself on a guided tour
