Bronzolo/Branzoll lies amid the porphyry slopes of the Göller, Roßsprung and Judenberg mountains at 238 metres above the sea level. As the main shipping port on the Etsch waterway, for centuries - untill the construction of the railway - it was an important distribution point, especially for the fairs in Bolzano/Bozen. Branzoll is first mentioned in a document in 1181. Also known as a mail station, it bears today the post horn in its coat of arms.
Branzoll boasts one oft the most beautiful church squares in South Tyrol. The historical square is surrounded by a number of important sacred and secular buildings.
Branzoll's wine-growing tradition dates back to Roman times. Artifacts uncoveres from nearby archaeological sites include a Roman-era pruning knife. The vinyards on the southern and northern sides of Branzoll, as well as the village centre, cover the large, sunny alluvial fan of the Aldeiner and Petersberger creeks.
Cabernet, as well as Merlot, Lagrein, and Vernatsch, all thrive in Branzoll's warm, sandy-rocky spoils.
