Vinschger Apricots

A great flavor! “Vinschger Apricots” is a true treat-enchanting, with an incomparable flavor. Enjoyed Apple-sized or delicately small, as apricot liquor or as filling in dumplings, they are always delicious. Especially famous are the “Laaser“ apricots.

You can sample apricots at a so-called “Marmorfest” where typical South Tyrolean products ranging from crafts to culinary treats are being presented including items made from “Marmor” which is the word for marble.

Pears from South Tyrol

An incomparable flavor! Kaiser Alexander, Pala-Pears (mainly from the region of Obervinschgau) and Williams are probably the most well known varieties of our province.

Williams Pear Brandy is one of the most famous distillates using only select quality and home grown Williams Pears.

A large selection of Williams’ distillate is available. For example, in the production of the “Edel-Williams-Brand” exclusively pears from high regions of South Tyrol are used, which are intriguing due to their well balanced and mild flavor.

South Tyrolean pears are always delicious.
