Asparagus weeks

Welcome to the Asparagus Triangle

Farewell winter, welcome mini-summer. Spring starts early in Terlan. The Mediterranean climate warms our bodies and minds while elsewhere the winter is still in full force.

And while many plants are still slumbering in their seeds our asparagus is already bravely peaking out of the ground. Every year we welcome this messenger of spring.

There are numerous delicious ways to enjoy asparagus. Terlan, Vilpian and Siebeneich have a long standing asparagus growing tradition and are thus known as the Asparagus Triangle.

Once again we would like to celebrate and enjoy asparagus season with you in April and May.
A warm welcome to all of you!

Every year's opening of the Asparagus Season will take place on the last Thursday in March.

Please find all information about the Asparagus Restaurants here.
