The Riesling Days in Naturns have become a tradition in the last years and are a recommendable event for wine lovers and connoisseurs.
Riesling-grapes were cultivated in South Tyrol since the middle of 19th century. But it lasted more than 150 years until wine-growers knew that only the surroundings of Naturns in Vinschgau and the Eisacktal offer the perfect conditions to attain a first-class Riesling.
Nowadays the Riesling from South Tyrol can bear easily the comparison with Rieslings from classic growing areas like Mosel and Rhein in Germany or the ones in Italy. Because of that not only South Tyrolean Riesling but also Italian Riesling will be presented to an international jury, which have to award the best wines.
The highlight for the public is the wine-tasting, where everyone can taste the awarded wines and a selection of the best Rieslings from all over the world. Moreover, the programme includes wine journeys, wine tastings with well-known wine-growers, visits to wine cellars and, last but not least, delicious dinners for gourmets.
