The Wines of Trentino–Alto Adige

Wines of Trentino-Alto AdigeAlthough Trentino–Alto Adige are not casually affianced, the hyphen between them is not a gratuitous one. While they may constitute a single political entity, their ostensibly shared history actually evidences distinctions that resonate in their contemporary identities and culture. The major point of difference issues from the extent of their relations with Austria. While both were under the latter’s rule from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the close of the First World War, Alto Adige and Austria go back much further— to the Middle Ages, to be precise. Thus, Alto Adige retains far more substantive vestiges of this affiliation than does Trentino, expressed most demonstratively in the bilingual culture, wherein Alto Adige is referred to as Südtirol and German wine names and appellations co-exist with their Italian counterparts.
