The Dolomites in Italy are a spectacular mountain range located in north eastern Italy which run through the apple region on Trento- Alto Adige. The UNESCO world heritage site is renowned for its fresh alpine air, clear mountain water and enchanting colours, the area is also celebrated for its apple and pear orchards, which is lucky, as that is where we get most of our apples and pears from! The climate of warm days and cool nights makes Trento – Alto Adige the ideal place to nurture apples and pears with crisp, clean and sweet flavours and textures. The altitude of the orchards can extend up to 1100m, this combined with the long ripening times, gives our apples their delicious flavour. There are over 2,000 local farming families that work these apple orchards.
