In the villages of Vilpiano, Settequerce and Terlano asparagus has been grown for centuries. In an area of 10 ha South Tyrolean asparagus growers grow high quality Terlano asparagus. Terlano asparagus has an elegant form and a mild flavour. Served with cold ham and Bolzano sauce Terlano asparagus is a pure culinary delight and highly popular during spring - especially accompanied by a glass of asparagus wine (Sauvignon Blanc). The quality assured Terlano asparagus is marketed under the royal name “Margarete”. The name of the South Tyrolean asparagus is derived from the last regent of Tirol, who is said also to have resided in the ruin of Castel Maultasch above Terlano.
