Nowadays, more than 60 wine cellars are partners of the South Tyrolean Wine Road. This is also the reason for the diversity in colour and taste of the local wines, the most famous of which is the Gewürztraminer.

The area produces about 90% of the South Tyrolean wines with typical wine types like Merlot and Lagrein or Weißburgunder and Ruländer. In 2009, the South Tyrolean Wine Road was elected the best in Italy.
