Our most important capital is our unique vineyards. Our philosophy is molded by the term “terroir”, the geographical, climatic and geological characteristics of a vineyard. These give the wine its distinctive character.
Vineyards on breathtakingly steep slopes from 220-900m a.s.l. - such a large difference in altitude within one municipality is unique in Europe. The low elevations are among the warmest in Alto Adige and are prefect for important red wines. On the high-altitude sites above the main village of Kurtatsch, the white varieties find ideal conditions.
The meticulous endeavor to produce wines that reflect their terroir creates distinctive and unmistakable wines. In the cellar, we let the wine unfold itself - so each wine reflects its place of origin.
In the evening, the fleshy grapes are cooled by fresh fall winds. This unique terroir gives our Merlot its Alpine character.
The mild evening sun and low sun intensity are decisive for the lively fruit and characteristic array of aromas of our Pinot noirs.
This, coupled with the steepness of the vineyards, brings forth exceptionally elegant Pinot noirs.
