Eppan is the largest wine-growing area in South Tyrol with about 1,200 hectares of vineyards, which are extending from 240 m to 1,600 m above sea level. Its territory is located at 240 to 1,600 meters above sea level and comprises nine lovely wine villages and hamlets.

The area is a small Eldorado for castle lovers and romantics. You can find countless castles, ruins and noble manors in the environs; many of them have been lovingly refurbished, are open for visitors or used as a hotel or restaurant that successfully balances between ancient traditions and modern tourism.

People appreciate the region around Eppan also because of its very mild climate offering with pleasant temperatures and a southern atmosphere already in spring. Combined with many precious hours of sunshine this climate creates ideal conditions for viniculture. In fact, it is hardly surprising that the wineries, producers of sparkling wine and grappa distilleries there produce many internationally famous wines and distillates every year.
