Montagna on South Tyrolean Wine Route
Montagna on South Tyrolean Wine Route (Strada del Vino) rises above the Valle dell'Adige valley, close to Bolzano and along the Wine Road. Land of excellent wines such as Pinot Noir, the village is towered by the Enna Castle, stronghold of the 12 century, and by the archaeological site of Castelfeder, which is close to the biotope of Castelvetere, a favorite destination of summer hiking tours. In the hamlets you find many architectural treasures such as castles, farms, and towers.
Part of the territory of Montagna sulla Strada del Vino is included in the Monte Corno Nature Park, where you can spend wonderful family holidays enjoying the nature and traditions of this land, exploring the territory along the hiking and mountain biking trails, and admiring the vineyards of Pinot Noir.
The municipality of Montagna includes several administrative divisions, like Pinzano, with its frescoes and the last standing Saltner tower, once guarding the vineyards. Above the village there is the old railroad of the Val di Fiemme valley.
