In the midst of a spectacular mountain landscape, Alto Adige’s wine cultivation stretches from the Alpine area in the north to Mediterranean-like landscape in the south. This distinctive, multifaceted Y-shaped region creates the ideal growing conditions for a multitude of grape varieties, producing exceptional quality wines. Explore the Y-factor with Alice Wong, Italian Wine Ambassador, and Debra Meiburg, Master of Wine, who’ll delve deep into the fascinating interplay of terroir, geography and climatic conditions that make this region unique, along with the stories of how winegrowers across multiple generations nurture the wines with practices of sustainability and innovation.
