Wineries and distilleries
Wine and grappa are the true protagonists of the Piana Rotaliana Königsberg.
The very varied composition of the soils, due to the different altitudes and the different types of sediment, allows the cultivation of different grape varieties, among which two autochthonous varieties of the area stand out: the red grape Teroldego and the white grape Nosiola.
Thanks to these beneficial conditions, the inhabitants of the area have been growing grapes for thousands of years and have developed a profound knowledge and tradition in the production of excellent wines. In addition to Teroldego Rotaliano, the prince of Trentino wines, and the delicate Nosiola, the classic sparkling wine Trento Doc, one of the most popular and awarded sparkling wines in the world, is typical of this area.
The information panels along the circular route provide information about the grape varieties grown, the territory and the cultural treasures. You will also find a map of all the wine producers in the immediate area.
A stop at one of the more than 50 wineries along the route is a must! From family-run wineries to cooperative wineries, you can book a guided tour and a tasting of the best products of each winery.
