Embark on a wine ski safari in Alta Badia March 20.

The South Tyrol Dolomites offer the perfect conditions for wine growing: a warm climate and fertile soil.

March 20, Wine growers in Alta Badia will be taking the very best of their produce up to 2000 metres for a tasting, accompanied by speck, bread, and cheese. Four mountain huts will each be assigned a wine-producing area: Isarco Valley, Merano-Adige Valley-Val Venosta, Bolzano, and Bassa Atesina-Oltradige. The tasting at the Club Moritzino, Bioch, Col Alt, and Punta Trieste huts has been organised by the Alta Badia Tourist Board in collaboration with the Consortium Alto Adige Wines.

Former members of the Italian national Alpine Ski Team  - Kristian Ghedina, Much Mair, Kurt Ladstatter, and Werner Perathoner - will accompany skiers from one hut to another and sampling the excellent South Tyrolean wines.

Tickets for the wine tasting are €15 each and may be obtained from the four participating huts.

The seven-night Dolomiti Super Sun package runs from March 19 to April 10 and can be booked with the wine ski safari. It includes accommodation, ski passes, ski and snowboard rentals, and four private lessons for the price of three.
