TERRITORY

Valle di Cembra is an area of terraced mountain supported by more than seven hundred miles of dry stone walls for a total of about three hundred hectares of crops, a spectacle landscape created by man to smooth inclines and promote agriculture for the livelihood of a rural community. Today endless terraced vineyards located between the 200 and 800 mt. a.s.l. rises above the Avisio stream. These icons of strenuous mountain farming are a real vine garden that obtained the national recognition of "Historical Rural Italian Landscape”. Valle di Cembra has a link with the screw that is lost in the mists of time. This land is the historical cradle of Trentino region viticulture, as evidenced by the discovery of Situla, a Rhaetic vase for wine of pre-Roman period found in Cembra countryside.

 


His harsh and evocative appearance has inspired many watercolors of the most important interpreter of the German Renaissance, the painter Albrecht Dürer. In 1494 he passed through Valle di Cembra during his trip to Italy. We celebrate his passage every year in late May with a cultural trek in the places visited by the master.
