The season opening in Caldaro is celebrated with party flair and elegance.
In the Isarco (Eisack) Valley, it is almost exclusively white wines that are produced. The only exception is the "Klausner Laitacher", which in addition to 50-60% Vernatsch, usually also contains Portugieser, Lagrein, and Pinot Nero. The designation "Südtirol Eisacktaler" must be followed by a designation of variety or location. It is especially Sylvaner and Müller Thurgau that characterize this zone. The area of cultivation amounts to 270 hectares (667 acres).
