In the Venosta Valley Culture Region

The Castelbello Castle and the Juval Castle 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 and Ciardes/Tschars 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.
