Venosta Valley is a region for gourmets and aficionados of unadulterated food. The dry valley is characterized by its very own microclimate, lots of sun and wind without much precipitation. For this reason, agricultural products and specialties mature here that are without parallel. Even today they are frequently sold directly from the farms.

Apples, apricots and Pala pear, berries and chestnuts, prize-winning wines, as well as asparagus from Castelbello/Kastelbell, buckwheat, rye and the re-discovered “poor people’s cuisine” – all this is part of the re-discovered Venosta Valley cuisine and makes it a cultural region with a fine natural way of life.
