Much more an extension of Austrian winegrowing than it is part of the Italian mainstream, the wines of Südtirol are produced in 52 of the 116 communities of the province. Here, winegrowing frequently shares the farmer's attention with fruit and tourism, since most of the growers have less than a single hectare under vines. For this reason, the 16 growers' co-ops are essential to the region's production, bottling some 70% of the total production..
