A walk through wineries and history
The Terlan Wine Trail is a themed trail that invites you to walk through the lovely vineyard landscape of Terlan. The vineyards on the steep flanks of the Tschöggelberg, where the great Terlan wines are at home, are located on the orographic left side of the valley at altitudes between 250 and 900 metres above sea level. Today, 75 % white wines and 25 % red wines are grown in Terlan.
With the help of many information boards along the way, you will discover the different vineyard sites, the varieties, forms of cultivation and the necessary care. The historical aspects of viticulture, the vineyards, the varieties, the forms of cultivation and the residences that the wine trail touches are listed.
Let’s start with one of the best wine producers in South Tyrol and Italy
The Terlan Wine Trail starts at the Terlan winery. Soon after the winery you will find the first of a total of 20 information boards along the trail.
The next point of interest is at the nearby Köstenholzhof farm of Baron Eyrl. The other vineyards described along the wine trail are Winkl, Dorf, Oberkreuth and Vorberg.
The Terlan wine trail leads past the Liebeneich estate to the highest point at the Aichhornhof farm. Then it goes over the Petersbach into the Oberkreuth vineyard and into the oldest district of Terlan of the same name, where the vineyards slope slightly to the north. From there, the Terlan Wine Trail loops back to the Winkl vineyard to return to the winery.
Of course, you can also hike only parts of the route and return to the starting point.
By the way, you can also visit the Terlan winery every Thursday from June to October, including wine tasting. First discover the old and new cellars, see how the wine is made and how the bottles are filled. Afterwards there are four Terlan wines to taste with pleasure.
The Terlan Winery, founded in 1893, is one of the best wine producers in South Tyrol and Italy.
A great brochure on “Terlan and the wine” can be downloaded here free of charge. It contains everything you need to know about the wine trail.
Much joy wish you
