Holidays & Wine a Harmonious Duet
Merano from health resort to South Tyrols city of pleasure
A feeling of well-being has always existed in winegrowing areas. With 300 days of sunshine a year, a mild, Alpine-continental climate and a delightful landscape with cypresses, cedars, palms and vineyards, Merano is one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations. The Merano grape cure had become de rigueur in society by the middle of the 19th century. Today, with its new Therme Merano hot baths, Merano is experiencing a renaissance as an attraction for those who enjoy the good things in life in South Tyrol.
Merano & the Vinschgau enjoy 300 days of sunshine a year. Wine here is thus an authentic ambassador for the landscape and joie de vivre
The high peaks of the Ötztaler Alps protect Merano and the Vinschgau against the cold winds. The valley, opening to the south, allows Mediterranean influences to penetrate towards the north. The level of precipitation, the large variations in temperature between night and day and the variety of the soil in the differing locations ensure high grape quality and a wide spectrum of aromas.
