Elegant South Tyroelan wines from the wine cellars of Scena

In the holiday region of Scena/Schenna, viticulture has always relied on quality instead of quantity for lack of large growing areas. About 30 hectares are cultivated by winemakers on the Mitterplattweg soil and along the steep, sunny slopes of the church hill of Scena.

The main grape cultivated in Scena is the Großvernatsch varietal. It is also known as the Meraner Kurtraube, because the large berry-type grape is traditionally used in Scena and Merano/Meran for therapeutic reasons due to its special healing properties, also in wellness and spa applications. In recent years, the white wine variety Chardonnay has also been increasingly grown.

In Scena there are about 30 independent winegrowers who dedicate themselves with great effort and knowledge to the cultivation of grapevines.

Did you know...
... that viticulture in the upper Etschtal Valley dates back to pre-Roman times? It has been mentioned in local history since the 6th century AD. Thanks to the Bavarian monasteries and bishoprics, the wine of these sunny hillsides first achieved fame and honor in the Middle Ages. The lucrative wine industry of the region continued to thrive under the Habsburg empire until the end of the 19th century, when the local economy underwent rapid changes. Since then, wine has been produced not only for the nobility and the clergy, but also the common market, with just as much success and an increasing differentiation of varieties.

All in all, South Tyrol is one of the finest winegrowing regions in Italy, and has received numerous awards to date from renowned German and Italian wine guides for its excellent high quality wines.
