“An apple a day keeps the doctor away!” Being real vitamin bombs is just one of the many reasons to occupy one´s mind with this delicious South Tyrolean fruit. The South Tyrolean apple is part of many menus at the Dolce Vita Hotels’ restaurants. Did you know that every tenth apple harvested in Europe is grown in South Tyrol and that apples are real mood lifters? Eating South Tyrolean apples supplies your blood with more oxygen and you instantly feel fresher and more energetic. The South Tyrolean apples are only harvested when ripe and full of vitamins and minerals.

South Tyrolean apples: apple paradise in the Vinschgau District
If you would put all the apples harvested in South Tyrol on top of each other, then the chain of apples would reach the moon. The Vinschgau District’s mild climate promotes an early bloom and with that a spectacle for the senses. A white veil covers South Tyrol and a wonderful fragrance breezes through the valley while icy temperatures still embrace the mountain peaks. The apple growers spray the blossoms with water should a late cold spell occur. The water turns into a protective coat of ice during the night. The first rays of sunshine melt the ice in the morning and the whole of the Vinschgau District glistens and sparkles in the sun. The cultivation of apples has a centuries-old tradition in South Tyrol. Apples from South Tyrol: quality you can taste.
