Opportunities to try local wines
Wine tastings and events
Imagine a place where vineyards stretch as far as the eye can see and winegrowers still store their wine in their own cellars. The quality of the wines produced in the Eisacktal valley is indisputable. You can try a choice selection of local wines at various unmissable events in and around Brixen. Hike from vineyard to vineyard and sample wines as the sound of music drifts through the air during BrixenClassics – musica e vino. Enjoy mouth-watering South Tyrolean specialities paired perfectly with wine during Dine, Wine & Music. Or visit some local wine cellars during Neustifter Frühling every spring.
A lively food festival
Balmy summer nights, chilled wine and delicious plates of food… On one evening every year, Brixen’s cathedral square hosts a food festival celebrating the finest summer dishes which the town’s inns have to offer. And the best thing about it, of course, is that you can try a bit of everything. Plus there’s a great atmosphere thanks to the South Tyrolean musicians who put you in the mood to dance the night away.
Close your eyes and imagine lush meadows, apple trees in full bloom, warm rays of sunshine drying the dewdrops glistening on the grapevine leaves, and the sound of music drifting through the air from the open wine cellars. On the last weekend in April, Neustift/Novacella near Vahrn/Varna comes alive for its spring festival. Tastings, guided vineyard tours, pony rides and regional products bring people together to share in the joy of this beautiful time of year.
Musica e Vino
Music, wine and the finest cuisine. At this new festival, launched in Brixen in 2021, you can enjoy classical music, South Tyrolean specialities and white wine from the Eisacktal valley, all against the backdrop of some spectacular cultural and historical settings. Lose yourself in the music as global opera stars take to the stage alongside young upcoming musicians. It’s a treat for all the senses.
