A heritage – and a task
For over 50 years we have been continuing on the dream of our grandfather, Hans, in producing our own wine.
Founded in 1956, Hans’ focus was selling open wines from the winery to Switzerland. In the 1980’s, his son Toni changed over to marketing bottled wines, and since 2001 he has been supported by his grandson Hannes. Not only have the grapes from the family’s 10 hectares been processed from the onset, but also that of 50 regional grape growers as well. This close cooperation has extended for generations and is essentially responsible for the excellent quality of the wines.
We have been consciously committed to the varietal character of the particular wines with a clear focus on the Bolzano varieties Lagrein and St. Magdalener.
We are convinced that the harmonious feeling that resides in the vineyard and wine cellar is also reflected in the wine itself. Around 100 persons work attentively year-round making certain that the quality of the grapes that goes into the bottle is unaltered, and each of these individuals is important to us.
A very careful handling of the grapes in the vineyards and in the wine cellar is an absolute necessity. No wine is bottled if the entire family is not absolutely convinced of it.
The actual quality of the wines is dependent on the slopes where the vines grow. Modern technology should merely support and maintain this. In our wine cellars, tradition meets innovation. 50-year old wooden barrels are lined up next to stainless steel tanks and barrique barrels.
We cultivate the individual sites separately as far as possible, in order to select out the best possible characteristics, and to then ultimately compose the final wines.
Personal contact to our customers is very important to us. In our wine sales shop, you have the opportunity to taste the variety and quality of our great selection. We will gladly advise you on your choice of wines.
Upon request, we will gladly organise a wine cellar tour with guided tasting for groups of up to 30 persons.
Our wines are available through specialised South Tyrolean retailers and are served in numerous hotels and restaurants. We will gladly provide you with names of suppliers in your area for both domestic and international orders. Of course we can directly provide you with individual and personal sales advice.
