Val Venosta: The Apple Paradise
The perfect mix makes the best apples
What makes a growing region a real Apple Paradise? Here in Val Venosta, the alpine-Mediterranean climate, the high altitude and plenty of sunshine ensure paradisiacal growing conditions. But that alone is not enough. Our farmers take care of the apples every day with a lot of experience, heart and hand. No wonder our Val Venosta apples are first-class in taste and quality!
A fertile place
A lot of sun, little rain, sometimes warm and then very cold again, that's how Val Venosta apples like it. No wonder they are so sweet and have such a strong colour.

The Venosta Valley wind
From the Pass of Resia, a cool breeze blows through the Venosta Valley. The wind of the Venosta Valley generates dryness, which really makes apple natural farming much easier.
Cultivated with heart and mind
First class apples need real care
Our farmers put a lot of love and manual labour in the farming of Val Venostas apples. It does not matter if it is the integrated or biological method. The favourite fruit of South Tyrol and our environment are always the most important and, therefore, are also appreciated and cherished.
