Castelbello - Ciardes Among  Val  Venosta communities  Castelbello-Ciardes  is  considered  to  be  the “village  of  connoisseurs”.  On  the sunny  slopes  of  the  area  surrounding Castelbello Castle to Juval Castle small farmrun wineries produce excellent  wines  with  a  character  typical for the region. High quality fine wines from Val Venosta are no longer merely a part of the range of South Tyrolean wines, they have also been given  many  international  awards in  their  own  right.  Many  delicacies
from  mother  nature’s  garden,  ranging from the high quality Castelbello asparagus in the spring to delicious chestnuts in the autumn, contribute to the large offer for connoisseurs of culinary delicacies. Many restaurants and other food outlets invite to speciality weeks.On the Val Venosta wine route hikers can enjoy an insightful and pleasurable  tour  throughout  the  year.  For long  distances  the  wine  route  follows the rogge, which were originally built as artificial irrigation channels.
At times, it runs past farms or crosses private  property  and  vineyards.  The people  who  live  and  work  here  are happy to offer passersby a glimpse into  their  way of  life  and  work.  Hikers and lovers of nature are asked to respect  the  property  and  traditions of  this  region  and  to  approach  nature with care. Along the way notice
boards  provide  information  on  the landscape, the wine, the restaurants and other food outlets, and the local wineries. The 2.5 hour long hike can also be undertaken in sections and in both directions.
