Speck Alto Adige

For generations this delicacy has been smoked according to an old family recipe

The unique taste of Speck Alto Adige PGI is thanks in no small part to its production in Alto Adige. For it’s here that Alpine landscapes and Mediterranean culture meet to form a unique blend. Even nature plays a role with the unique climate, plenty of sun and clean air. South Tyrol may be small but it features food and flavours that come up big. The northernmost province in Italy unites both the Alpine and the Mediterranean, and it is blessed by 300 days of sun per year. The stunning mountain scenery has been the backdrop for the production of typical South Tyrolean speck for generations and it is the home of true speck culture.
