An incredibly special, south-facing vineyard with a long, extraordinary history is to be found nestling like a true gem high above Lagundo. For generations already vines of the indigenous Schiava variety have flourished here, grown using the traditional pergola system on these steep slopes and hidden between ancient stone walls. Over the years their roots have driven metres deep into the soil and today, thanks to the naturally limited yield, enable the production of a multifaceted, soft and juicy red wine with fine grippy tannins. Thanks to the conscious employment of wood, the “Fürst” Schiava need fear no comparison at all with a good Pinot Noir.

No other wine is able to describe its homeland of South Tyrol more aptly than the Pinot Bianco “Tyrol”. This fine wine comes from a single, very old vineyard with naturally limited yields, situated beneath the “cradle of Tyrol” - the famous Tyrol Castle. This extremely dry and nutrient-poor south west-facing slope, with gradients of up to 50%, is bordered at the sides by very dense woodland and thus protected from heavy storms. At the same time, the downslope winds of the Texel Group cause the temperatures to fall very low during the night. Aged in steel and oak barrels, this multi-layered wine impresses with its delicate mellowness, extraordinary fruit, concentrated minerality and notable development potential.
