During a holiday on a wine farm, you have the unique opportunity to experience the exciting work of wine-growing up close - of course not without tasting the good wine. Around 300 winegrowers offer farm holidays under the brand name 'Roter Hahn'.

Thanks to the warm and temperate climate, Bolzano and its surroundings makes for an ideal wine-growing area. Gently rolling hills with vineyards, dotted with picturesque wine villages, castles, palaces, old rural residences and farms, adorn the South Tyrolean Wine Road. Wine lovers and connoisseurs can enjoy their finest moments here.
Gentle vineyards can also be found in the lower Eisacktal valley and around Brixen. Predominantly fine white wine varieties are grown here. The ancient custom of 'Törggelen' also has its origins in this region, when the 'Nuie', or young wine, is tasted.
This autumnal tradition is practised in the entire wine-growing region and extends to the area around Meran.

If you would like to learn more about South Tyrolean wines, or you would like to experience the harvest 'live', or if you just want to enjoy yourself, you'll be sure to get your money's worth on a holiday on a wine farm.
 

And here are a few insider tips for beginners:
 

What does 'Wimmen' mean? and what is meant by 'pergola'?
 

'Wimmen' in South Tyrol is the name for the grape harvest. A wonderful, but also intense time for South Tyrolean winegrowers. On almost all wine farms you can watch farmers at work during 'Wimmen'.
 

'Pergola' is the name of a popular system of training the vines in South Tyrol. Horizontal poles are attached to posts, which are driven vertically into the ground. The vines are pulled up and tied to this framework. The leaves form a kind of roof over the archways. This 'pergola' allows the soil under the canopy to store moisture better and serves as natural protection against the sun. This type of vine training is mainly used for the Vernatsch grape variety and sometimes also for the Lagrein.
