Dual 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 (German: Trento) and Bolzano (Italian: Bolzano). In terms of viticulture, 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 Trentino with about 10,000 hectares of vineyards. The predominantly German-speaking province of Bolzano (Bolzano) with the capital of the same name is the northern part and corresponds to the South Tyrol (Ital. Alto Adige = High Adige) with around 5,500 hectares of vineyards.
