The Castelbello Castle
and the Juval Castles
dominate the landscape in the lower part of the Venosta Valley. The one is a cultural venue, gallery and landmark, the other the summer residence of the great mountaineer Reinhold Messner and also accommodates part of his Messner Mountain Museum. The soils on the sunny side of the Venosta Valley between Castelbello/Kastelbell
are made up of sand and clay and yield delicate, aromatic white wines, while the views along the irrigation channel paths
range from the incredibly high summits in the west of South Tyrol to the Dolomites.
