The typical products
Bolzano is surrounded by approximately 500 hectares of vineyards interlacing amidst the houses. Its particular climate, good soil and variety of cultivating areas create the conditions for an exceptional production. The two autochthonous wines are Lagrein and Santa Maddalena, although cultivation has recently been enriched with other types of grapevines. 98% of grapevines are D.O.C. designated. This confirms the high quality of the wines of Bolzano.
Speck Alto Adige IGP
Speck Alto Adige PGI is a lightly smoked and cured ham. The distinctive aspect, aroma and flavour owe its special character to traditional methods of production, which have been passed from generation to generation and are protected by the European Union. The production rule is essentially: a little smoke, seasoning of 22 weeks and a little salt, i.e. not more than 5%. Compliance with the production regulations results in the fire branding of the finished product with the seal "Speck Alto Adige PGI" (Protected Geographical Indication).
