The name “Segen”, or Blessing, tells you everything you need to know. Along the Tappeinerweg trail, above the roofs of the spa town of Merano, the Segenbühel, with its majestic steep slopes, rises up - simultaneously the warmest and driest spot in Merano. This spot is a real blessing for wine lovers, since the soils, which are cultivated by hand, possess a unique ability to store heat. The soils are able to radiate the heat absorbed during the day throughout the night and thus produce the ideal ripening conditions. The slow growth of the vines plays its part in delivering impressive quality. Striking, complex and fruity, this indigenous grape vine comes into its own in an elegant and powerful Riserva that is typical of the variety.

“I had the idea many years ago of creating a great white wine Riserva that would spend five years maturing on fine yeast in the cellar. It was always important to me to test the winemaking possibilities of our leading white grape variety,” says cellar master, Stefan Kapfinger. The grapes for this graceful meditation wine come from a single estate below Tyrol Castle. Great emphasis is placed on care and a love of detail during its production. The very best clones, meticulous yield regulation and the most elaborate craftsmanship are the credo here. After careful whole-cluster pressing and with natural sedimentation, this masterpiece is left to rest for one year in oak barrels and a further 4 years in steel barrels on fine lees. Only after over 5 years - as the name suggests - does this special wine find its way into the bottle.

Every bottle is unique; every mouthful a delight. The Brut Riserva 36 sparkling wine stems from a great cuvée of the French varieties, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc. This vintage sparkling wine is produced in accordance with the elaborate traditional method, known as the “metodo classico”. The grapes for this come from a few, selected vineyards in the Meraner Land region, which when blended allow a unique, fresh and fruity aroma to unfold. However, the Brut Riserva 36 sparkling wine only becomes a genuine masterpiece in connection with its fine perlage and the pleasing notes of yeast that develop during the elaborate bottle fermentation followed by 36 months of storage on fine lees. A complex bouquet of bread crust, yeast, vanilla and ripe fruit comes together, in an elegant, light bottle, with minerality, vibrant acidity and a fine, long-lasting perlage.
