VENOSTA VALLEY | TRENTINO ALTO ADIGE

vinschgau valley

The Vinschgau (medieval: Finsgowe) or Vinschgau Valley is the upper part of the Etsch or Adige river valley, in the western part of the province of Bolzano in the Trentino Alto Adige Region of Italy.

The valley runs in a west-east orientation, between the Reschen Pass and Merano. Due to a rather warm climate and a lack of rain (400mm per year), the apple orchards throughout the valley are irrigated. According to the 2001 census, 96.51% of the population of the valley speak German, 3.41% Italian and 0.08% Ladin as first language.
