Le Vigne

Vigna Delle Forche

Trentino DOC

In the early 1900s, cultivating vines or any other crop at high altitudes seemed impossible. Yet in “Vigna delle Forche” they were already trying to debunk this myth, first with the cultivation of wheat and then other vegetables until vines were cultivated there in the 1960s, first with the Schiava variety and then with Muller Thurgau.

This extraordinary vineyard is located 872 metres above sea level; for over twenty years it has been producing the precious grapes which give rise to one of the most important and representative wines of Cembra Valley.
