The small village of Vezzano/Vetzan
lies at the feet of the Monte Sole mountain
slopes, at a distance of approximately 2 km from Silandro/Schlanders. Vezzano, specially sun kissed in its wonderful hillside position, is the Venosta Valley’s principal vineyard town.
Records show that it has been managed by the Monte Maria Monastery from as early on as in 1170. On the well-aerated soil, fine wine varieties, such as the local "Vezzaner" and "Fraueler" still thrive.
Also the Romanesque St. Nikolaus Church,
which was buried by a mudslide in 1840, is an interesting example of the truly moving history of the village.
