Around Auer/Ora, Montan/Montagna, Neumarkt/Egna and Salorno/Salurn flourishes the best wine. The hills around Mazon/Mazzon and Glen/Gleno and also in Buchholz/Pochi (Salorno) provide ideal conditions for the Pinot Noir grapes. This most elegant of red wines thrives here, velvety, full-flavoured, long lasting and in many variations. Its rightful place in this region is confirmed by the international Pinot Noir days and nights which take place every year in Montan/Montagna and Neumarkt/Egna in the holiday region Bolzano/Bozen and environs.
