South Tyrol - Südtirol: where quality apples are born

Nature created excellent conditions for the VOG cultivation area. South Tyrol - Südtirol has an ideal microclimate that allows our fruit to grow and ripen perfectly.

At altitudes between 200 and 1,000 m, each variety of apple finds its ideal habitat. The warm days and cool nights, typical of the Mediterranean Alpine climate, enhance their quality. The 300 days of sunshine and 800 mm of rain per year allow them to achieve excellent ripeness and a unique taste.


The extraordinary location of the cultivation area

South Tyrol - Südtirol, the birthplace of apples, is located in the north of Italy. The area is protected by Alpine mountain ranges and receives warm air from the south. It is the ideal region for apple cultivation. Our production area is located in the heart of the country and stretches between Merano, Bolzano, Salorno and Bressanone.
