Our vision is a Pinot Noir that touches, that emanates vividness and elegance. Our Pinot Noir should be an ambassador of its origin and offer unrestricted pleasure.
Vernatsch (Schiava) is an original South Tyrolean grape variety. Long underrated, and now drawing wine lovers' interest again. Why? Because Vernatsch is an ambassador of our climate and lifestyle. We believe in its characteristics – juicy, fruity, yet complex, strong in tannins and long-lasting. Our old Vernatsch vineyard with small-berried grapes and low yield holds the outstanding potential to show all these characteristics. Vernatsch is more Burgundy than you could ever imagine!
Our Pinot Blanc “Vom Muschelkalk” grows on our highest vineyard in Gfill/Appiano Monte, 600 meters above sea level. In 2015, we purchased this vineyard cultivated with 60-year-old Pergola vines and produced our first single-vineyard wine in 2016. The vineyard lies on a hillside at the foot of the Mendel Mountains and has deep porphyry subsoils with clayey sediments and gravelly alluvial soils containing lime and clay. Surprisingly, the very deep red clay soil features shell limestone slabs, which give our Pinot Blanc its name. The result is a very alpine, tense wine underlined by a profound acidity, freshness, and elegance.
