Terlano and surroundings

Terlan on the Wine Road

Terlano is located between Merano and Bolzano, which can be reached in just a few minutes, and is one of the largest municipalities in the Adige Valley.
It is famous for its church tower made of red porphyry, one of the highest in South Tyrol, and for the ruins of Maultausch Castle, from which you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view.

Wine cultivation is widespread in this area. A special feature of Terlano is the small distribution of the vineyards, which makes it easier to manage them more carefully and in a targeted manner, so that each vineyard achieves its full quality potential.

Visit the Terlano winery

In addition to wine, the area is famous for its apple and asparagus cultivation, the latter being celebrated every year in spring.

The Terlano wine path takes you from Terlano winery through the Terlano vineyards. Many signs provide interesting facts about the history and culture of Terlano wine. You discover information about the various positions for growing vine, the types, forms of training and the required maintenance. After a 11/2 – 2 hour long walk you return to the starting point – armed with a much deeper knowledge of wine! Find out more
