Piana Rotaliana in Trentino

Here you can see how the valley floor is cradled by the stepp rock faces that surround Trentino's Piana Rotaliana: home to the indignous Teroldego grape. The grapes vines are trained on Pergolas here to allow the winds access to the vines. The daily breeze, know as the Ora winds, helps to keep the vines cool and carries moisture away as it heads north.

    I absolutely agree with you traveling in the wine business is hard work, however worthy. Must of the time when I read an article about wines and their regions in Italy, it seems that the same regions are mentionned must of the time, when there is some wonderfull wine in other regions such as in Lombardia, Abruzzo, Campania and Calabria, just to mention a few. I know that region such as Calabria are not always easy access, but when you are a wine lover "there's no mountain too high no river too wide".

    All the best,
