From vineyards nestled beneath the Italian Alps, Alto Adige produces the perfect wines for New Orleans food and climate! Steep, sun-drenched slopes, mineral-rich soils and a long ripening season provide ideal conditions for crafting exceptional wines from 20 different varieties. The region, also known as Südtirol due to its bicultural Italian-Austrian heritage, is acknowledged by sommeliers the world over for wines of impeccable quality and value. From Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio and Gewürztraminer to Pinot Nero, Lagrein and Schiava, Alto Adige, Italy’s northernmost wine region, produces elegant and delicious wines. Tonight we'll taste 5 wines by Tramin accompanied by Northern Italian cheeses and cured meats.
