The vineyards of Trentino Castel Besono DOC are situated in the province of Trento, in the municipalities Besenello and Calliano. In order for the label to mention the name Castel Beseno (or Beseno), the grapes must be grown around the villages Calliano and the neighboring municipality of Besenello, located at the foot of the quite impressive and well-preserved medieval castle, Castel Beseno.
