Growing Conditions

on the lower part of the alluvial fan of the Höllenbach stream, where the soil is composed
of limestone and gravel; the fan’s sedimented rocks originate from the highest peaks of
the Mendel mountain range, amongst which Roen (2,116m). Due to the weight of the cool
downslope winds that start blowing in the nighttime the cool air ammasses in our Glarea vineyards.
The low altitude (between 220 and 280 m a.s.l.) and the vicinity to the valley bottom make
for a special microclimate, which is characterized by a strong diurnal temperature variation. During
the day, the Glarea vineyards benefit from very warm temperatures, while in the night and in
the early morning hours fresh air masses make them drop.

partial malolactic fermentation.


Maturation also takes place in oak (barriques, tonneaux and 12
hl barrels).

Glarea is an all-rounder and can be paired with any first course that is savoury in
flavour, from vegetable minestrone to spaghetti with clams. It tastes marvellous with tasty fish or
delicate white meat dishes. Also try it with your pizza, especially if topped with buffalo mozzarella
