Love at first sight. Has it happened to you? It did to us…but not how you might imagine.
We were several days into our first Italian adventure. Like most tourists, we sought to explore some of Italy’s most popular destinations. After consuming the wonders of Venice and Verona, we rented a car venturing north into what we then knew only as the “Italian Alps”. And then it happened. Almost instantly. The splendor we encountered in South Tyrol shot an arrow straight through our wanderlust hearts. Travel would never be the same again.
Our bucket list of countries to visit became meaningless clutter. Hopping around and crossing off as many destinations as possible suddenly seemed pointless. For us, the only choice was South Tyrol. Our passion became devouring and savoring all the area has to offer.
Like all good travelers, we immediately snapped a couple of selfies to capture the moment. We’ve become a bit more fashion-forward since then.
A Hidden Gem Revealed
The seed for Throne & Vine was planted on that first trip to South Tyrol. We felt as if we had stumbled on Italy’s best-kept secret. It was tempting to keep this hidden gem to ourselves, but when family and friends began questioning why we kept returning to the same place in Italy, we knew keeping the lid on South Tyrol forever was just not possible.
Throne & Vine blossomed into our way to reveal all of the beauty, adventure, history and culture South Tyrol offers travelers. We dive deep sharing the best South Tyrol experiences from wine getaways, hiking excursions, wellness retreats, culinary discoveries and much more.
