Castelbello-Ciardes is located between the mild Alpine-Mediterranean basin of Merano/Meran, the high Alpine glacier of Senales/Schnals and the windy but sunny Venosta Valley. Thus, it offers ideal conditions for high-quality farm products and specialties
. The village is known for its organic produce such as asparagus
and great wines
, but also excellent fresh fruit such as apples and pears, apricots and berries. Castelbello-Ciardes is also home to great single-varietal fruit brandies
The wines are mostly produced by small wine growers
, who also run small farm distilleries
and farmers’ shops
, where all first-class products can be tasted and purchased locally.
