The Lagrein grapes are cultivated in a natural way with great diligence, passion and love. The vineyards are located on the south-exposed vineyard sites of the wine village S. Maddalena near Bolzano at an altitude of about 300 m above sea level and have a gravelly moraine soil. The vine stocks are grown according to the traditional South Tyrolean pergola-system. Due to the situation on the steep slopes a high amount of manual labour is needed.
The grapes are picked at the beginning of October by hand.
The grapes are vinificated carefully and fermented in a slow and controlled manner in steel tanks. The new wine develops in small and big oak barrels and is bottled after two years.
