Kurtatsch on the South Tyrolean Wine Road
Kurtatsch lies at an altitude of 333 m and is ideal for a stress-free vacation. With its hamlets of Penon, Graun and Entiklar, it overlooks the Adige Valley from its sunny balcony. The whole of Kurtatsch has a population of 2350.
You can say we live on the sunny side of life in the southernmost part of South Tyrol. More than 2000 hours of sun ripen the grapes for noble wines on the slopes of Kurtatsch and make the apples on the valley floor particularly sweet. In the center of the village, a five-minute walk from our farm, you can find restaurants, pizzerias, a bank, the post office and a pharmacy. The quiet village, untroubled by mass tourism, gives you insight into community life.
The neighboring villages of Margreid, Kurtinig, Tramin and Kaltern, just like Kurtatsch, invite you to linger and discover their quaint corners.
Margreid, nestled close to the steep cliffs of the Fennberg mountain, has retained its unique character throughout the centuries and is considered to be one of South Tyrol’s most beautiful wine villages.
Kurtinig, once surrounded by the meandering Adige River (thus the nickname of “little Venice”), lies in the midst of the vineyards and orchards. Tramin, the home of Gewürztraminer, can be reached on foot over the pathway directly in front of our house. Kaltern is most likely the best-known wine village in South Tyrol.
On the other side of the Adige Valley, you will find the villages of Auer, Montan, Neumarkt and Salurn.
