Nature, culture and unadulterated enjoyment – this is the hallmark of Venosta Valley. Agriculture continues to play a major role today in the valley of connoisseurs. Time goes by differently here – the rhythm of daily life, work, and regional cuisine are adapted to the climate and the seasons.

Sun, wind and little precipitation characterize the valley. This excellent microclimate helps bear sweet fruit on the farms. Venosta Valley is today home to high quality produce. Here you will find old fruit varieties such as the Venosta Valley apricot or Palabirne (pear), and cabbage products – specialities, which are still sold direct from the farm and in farmers markets. Additionally, fields of grain, fruit and vegetable planations, and vineyards at altitudes up to 1000 m above sea level can be found here.
