Cortaccia sulla strada del vino

Description

Cortaccia sulla strada del vino (Kurtatsch an der Weinstraße in German and Cortaccia on the Wine Route in English) is a small town in the province of Bolzano, set in a wonderful and picturesque landscape, characterised by regular rows of vines, behind protected by snowy peaks. The place name derives from the Latin word "curtis" and is documented for the first time already in the VI century.
