The grapes selected for the production of this prestigious wine come from the sunny vineyards that surround the Sabiona monastery, known as the “Acropolis of Tyrol”. The severe selection, the controlled production and the delicate ageing in acacia wood casks provide this wine with unmistakable breed.
This grape variety, most probably originally from Germany, was introduced to Alto Adige in around 1900. Today it is cultivated mainly in the Valle Isarco. Sylvaner prefers the well-ventilated and sunny hillsides at intermediate altitudes, in the mid Valle Isarco. The loose and gravelly soils provide this wine with unique breed and although similar to its homonyms from the other side of the Alps, it retains the unmistakable typicality of Valle Isarco wines.
Hora honors Sylvaner with some ageing. Fermentation done with Skin contact and aged in wood, this wine has evolved into a spectrum of very interesting aromas. The result is a Sylvaner in sensory overload specifically adaptable to many gastronomic combinations.
The Sylvaner variety has been cultivated in Valle Isarco for over a century and today is one of this valley’s most representative grape varieties. The favourable weather conditions, the loose and pebbly soil and the airy and sunny vineyards allow this variety to give its best and stand at the top in terms of quality.
Alto Adige has been home to Silvaner for more than 200 years. The vines grow mainly on warm, well ventilated sites as found in the Isarco Valley and on the Renon. The Silvaner presents fresh and fruity, delicate and elegant.
Sylvaner is a very old grape variety. It is part of the most important types of wine in the Valle Isarco. Along with Riesling, Sylvaner represents one of our main varieties. The three warm and airy locations of Kuenhof, Lahner and Gasteiger provide an extraordinary expressivity to this wine. Our Sylvaner presents itself as a complex salty wine with a fruity spice, a particularly strong taste and a long finish.
The wine is named after our grandpa Sepp, who already in 1980 chose the best sites for his vines. The result tastes pleasantly fruity ripe apple and white peach. With its long-lasting flavor and pithy acidity in the finish, it goes extremely well with fish, asparagus, appetizers and aperitif.
150 years ago, Archduke Johann of Austria brought this variety to South Tyrol. Today the Isarco Valley is one of the best white wine regions in Italy.
