The Winery

The Winery

The foundation stone of the winery was already laid in 1901. Today the winery holds 360 members who work a total area of 245 hectares. Most of them are small farmers who work their vineyards with diligence, joy and passion.

In the wine cellars greatest care is taken to ensure that the grapes are processed gently. Old traditions combined with innovation, knowledge, foresight, profound passion and meticulous attentiveness guarantee the production of high quality and authentic wines.

The production areas

The production areas

The production areas around Merano are embedded and protected right in the heart of the Alps. Shielded by the high mountain range of the Texel Group in the north, with access to the south, various grape varieties flourish here. Every single place, the soil and the climatic conditions are examined with knowledge and care in order to find the best location for each variety. The result is an amazingly various and exciting wine repertoire.

Pinot Bianco

The Pinot Bianco grape feels especially at home on the poor soils and sunny slopes of the Merano region. The alcoholic fermentation in small stainless steel tanks forms a wine with a brilliant lemon green color and decent fresh scents of green apples and citrus fruits. Complex and well balanced on the palate with a vivid acidity.
