A brief history

Baron Sigmund von Kripp founded the Stachlburg wine estate in 1990. This year the first vineyard was planted with Pinot Noir (Blauburgunder) and Chardonnay. Since 1992, red and white wines are pressed in our basement of Stachlburg. The castle itself is family owned since 1547.

The altitude of 650m demands special grape varieties, which, particularly on the Partschinser soil on the sunny south-facing hillside, produce exceptionally intense wines. With great care, all wines are aged and rested in our cellar in steel tanks or in barrels.

The wines are generally characterized by a particular fruitiness, an elegant acidity and a delicate structure. At times, also the fortunate exposition to the sun position and the careful thinning can produce fairly full-bodied wines. Other locations are found in the low-lying village of Andrian where with an altitude of only 300m, there is a privileged climate for rich and mineral wines.

Stachlburg Lagrein Kretzer Bottle Preview
StachlburgLagrein Kretzer

On the stony slopes of Wolfsthurn Castle at Andrian in the warm Etsch valley we grow our Lagrein grapes. The poor soil of chalk and porphyry leads to a mineral and fruity rosé wine. Lagrein is one of the autochthones southtyrolean wine grapes. Very short maceration and some months in steel tins conserve the freshness and youth of this wine. A very young and fresh rosé wine, good for aperitif or to pair with cold summer dishes.
