Arrival of spring
The apple trees in blossom announce the arrival of spring. This extraordinary natural spectacle takes place from mid-April to the beginning of May when Val Venosta becomes a sea of white and pink flowers that color the valley and spread a fresh and delicate scent. Cloudless sky, crystal-clear air, the typical mountain huts and the snow-cowered Ortler peak in the background: Val Venosta’s already enchanting landscape is even more beautiful and fascinating when spring announces itself.
Bees do the rest
The cold season is over, the temperatures are slowly getting milder and the long awaited spring in Val Venosta begins. Attracted by the warm and dry climate the bees return and swarm out to pollinate the apple blossoms. They love life in the orchards and this is why many farmers have beehives. Bees are welcome in our valley as they are indispensable for the pollination of our apple tree and the whole ecosystem.
Discover the awakening of nature and visit our valley
Val Venosta is the perfect place to promote your wellbeing and to take wonderful walks with the whole family. Lovers of unspoilt nature will like walking and hiking through apple orchards and woods until mountain huts and refuges or making a multi-day hiking tour. We invite you to not only discover Val Venosta’s wonderful landscape on foot but also by bike. One of the favorite destinations of bikers is the cycling trail through Val Venosta’s beautiful apple orchards that takes you from Resia to Merano along the "Via Claudia Augusta" in South Tyrol. This fantastic cycle route with typical flora and fauna is more than 80 kilometers long and is equally ideal for beginners and experts.

No wonder that it has become a typical variety from Val Venosta. Pinova loves South Tyrol’s west just like its mother variety, Queen Golden Delicious, does. Together, they are the pride of Val Venosta’s apple producers.
