The lower Venosta Valley from Castelbello/Kastelbell to Silandro/Schlanders is characterized by wine cultivation. Picturesque pergolas stretch across the entire face of the Monte Sole mountain. The area has a very low rainfall and is therefore ideal for producing wine. Due to the high temperature and altitude changes, it is also possible to grow many different varietals. The sunny and sloping vineyards are particularly suitable for white wines. The often rewarded Riesling is pressed in the Venosta Valley, which is also fertile ground for the Weissburgunder and Blauburgunder grapes, as well as South Tyrolean indigenous wines such as Vernatsch, Gewuerztraminer and Fraueler.

Compared to other regions, wine growing in the Venosta Valley is characterized by small-scale wineries and not by large cooperatives. Castelbello/Kastelbell, Laces/Latsch and Silandro/Schlanders with their 35 hectares of vineyards are known as DOC areas, and produce highly regarded top-quality wines and magnificent liquors.
