Double region in Italy with a total of 15,500 hectares of vineyards. Since 1972, Trentino-Alto Adige has been divided into the two autonomous provinces of Trento and Bolzano. From a viticultural point of view, however, they are regarded as separate regions - they are also quite different. The predominantly Italian-speaking province of Trento with the capital of the same name (also the capital of the entire region) is the southern part and corresponds to the area of Trentino with about 10,000 hectares. The predominantly German-speaking province of Bolzano (Bozen) with the capital of the same name is the northern part and corresponds to the area of about 10,000 hectares South Tyrol (Ital. Alto Adige = High Adige) with about 5,500 hectares.
Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.Thomas Götz
