SP | Alois Lageder Alto Adige Italian Wine Dinner

Alto Adige Wine Dinner

featuring regional wineries Alois Lageder & Elena Walch

“Cultivating nature as a habitat of life”

Trentino-Alto Adige is Italy’s northernmost wine region, bordering Austria. Reflecting its complex geopolitical history, Trentino-Alto Adige is composed of two autonomous provinces: Trentino is almost entirely Italian speaking, while Alto Adige has a predominantly German-speaking population. The latter know their province by the name Südtirol (South Tyrol in English). This is due to the region’s former status as part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, from which it was reclaimed by Italy in 1919. The region’s population of more than a million people is divided fairly equally between the two provinces. As a whole, approximately two-thirds of them speak Italian as their first language. Looking at a map, Trentino-Alto Adige is divided almost perfectly, with Trentino in the south and Alto Adige in the north. It is also bisected east from west by the Adige river, which gives Alto Adige (Upper Adige) its name. The valleys formed by the Adige and its tributaries are home to almost all of the region’s vineyards.
