To decipher Salorno’s character we need to go back to the 19th century, when the town was still the focal point of trade between the Brenner Pass and the rest of Italy. For a long time Salorno was the hub for all travellers heading south and north. However, following the construction of the railway, time in the village seems to have stood still.
Wine plays an important role in this area and we learn more about it with a visit to a biodynamic winery located above the village.
The vineyard, surrounded by dry stone walls, is shared with free-range pigs, goats, sheep and chickens, creating a wonderful atmosphere and a vision of how mixed organic farming can really work in balance with nature. Once we reach the top, we are greeted by our hosts and are presented with an unexpected and incredible surprise: the impressive vastness of the Adige Valley.
