Musica e Vino in South Tyrol
Many different grape varieties can be found growing on the sun-drenched slopes surrounding Brixen. Locals have been producing wine here since 1142, devoting particular care and attention to white wine. Today, the area’s white varieties are among the best in Italy and even the world. Inspired by this winegrowing culture, the BrixenClassics festival is a celebration of wine and classical music. Every June, musicians and singers from across Europe meet in Brixen to perform together. Concerts are held in various unique and historic settings around the town and, of course, there are plenty of local wines to sample while you enjoy the music.
