In the Val Casies Valley, what is worked with is what nature provides. And it’s not just the farmers who do that – a great deal of handicraft is based upon working with natural materials. Thus distributed throughout Monguelfo, Tesido, and the entire Val Casies Valley are cabinetmakers, carpenters, floor layers, and wood turners. At the far end of the Val Casies Valley, in absolute quiet and in the midst of a unique mountain landscape, is where the hand-turned wooden bowls of Josef Taschler come into existence. They are an expression of the power of the Alps. For his works, which are often more objects of design than utilitarian objects, Taschler uses only exquisite local woods. Those who would like to lend a personal touch to wooden handicraft works as well as objects made from other materials head to Gravur Design, where Daniel Stoll carries out wonderful embossing and engraving work.
Cheese, honey, herbs and their derivatives, grappa, berries, jams... the assortment of local products is large and the quality is flawless. Farmers and nature-lovers offer the finest in natural countryside items for sale and, in so doing, support the local products while at the same time promoting esteem and appreciation for animals and plants.
The ox meat from the Val Casies Valley is especially renowned. Its appeal lies in its tender, finely fibered structure, and for more than two hundred years, it has been famous well beyond the borders of the province. Many products are excellently suited as a souvenir to take back to loved ones at home. A piece of South Tyrol-Südtirol in its most noble form to remember.
