A brief history

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.

Meet The Winemakers

  • Hannes Rottensteiner

    Hannes is representing the 3rd generation of the wine making family Rottensteiner, that since more than 500 years is correlated to viticulture.

    Hannes studied enology in San Michele (Italy) and Geisenheim (Germany). After an intensive stage at the San Michele Appiano winery he started working together with his father in our cellar from 2001 on.

    "I love monovarietal wines and concentrate much on the particularity of every single variety.", that’s his philosophy in wine making.
    Hannes particularly likes the traditional varieties of Alto Adige – Pinot Bianco, Schiava, Lagrein – that mean to him heritage and modernity at the same time.

“To produce an absolutely outstanding Santa Maddalena from the grapes of the Premstallerhof estate, working in perfect harmony with nature,” this was Gertrud Vogel’s dream when at the beginning of the new millennium she decided to personally take charge of the family estate in Santa Maddalena. And this is also the objective that enologist Hannes Rottensteiner set for himself. The outcome? A selection of Santa Maddalena grown in the Premstallerhof estate’s best areas which seduces with its diversity, concentration, and complexity.

South Tyrol Pinot Noirs were nominated among the best Pinot Noirs of Italy many times, even among the best outside of Burgundy. This can be attributed to a land so rich in different slopes and soils, such that good conditions prevail for even the most difficult of varieties like the Pinot Noir.
