Excellent wine tasting
The experience of enjoying a full day at high altitude on skis, tasting different fine South Tyrolean wines while skiing from one hut to the other, is priceless. Sommelier on the Slopes is an amazing experience for wine-lovers or simply for those who want to know the best food and wine products of our wonderful land.
The events are held in cooperation with the South Tyrol Wine Consortium and the South Tyrol’s Sommelier Association, that brings together the best producers of labels in our alpine region.
Each tasting follows the classic scheme provided by AIS (Italian Sommelier Association), which means the analysis of the visual, olfactory, flavour aspects. Partecipants will therefore be able to discover the unique characteristics of the wines offered, as well as suggesting the most suitable combinations in line with the most current food and wine trends.
