Kaltern’s “Plent”

Far and wide you can only see vineyards and fruit orchards and not a trace of a corn field. Have you noticed that? In fact, polenta was only cultivated in the Überetsch area for a relatively short historical period of about 300 years. This was just long enough until fruit cultivation became more lucrative and apple trees replaced corn plants. But actually, this wouldn’t even be South Tyrol without this beloved, yellow-meal polenta grain. Polenta served with either goulash, sausages or cheese is a traditional meal in the area, especially during harvest time. And in fine local restaurants, it is served as polenta dumplings, baked vegetable polenta or blutwurst polenta as a side dish to many delicious
meat and fish dishes. Today, home-grown, authentic Kalterer polenta is available once again at some of the wein.kaltern businesses and it is the perfect dish to enjoy with a refreshing glass of Kalterersee. The true taste of Kaltern’s terroir, the taste of the land, is now available in your glass and on your plate!

Information: you can buy the "Kalterer Plent" trough wein.kaltern or at the partner businesses of wein.kaltern
