Our winemaker Hans Terzer unfolds his great artistry and experience with the Sanct Valentin premium line.

Pinot noir has been grown in South Tyrol since 1850 and is known locally as Blauburgunder - it’s the Winery’s most important red wine. Producing top quality Pinot noir represents a major challenge for any winemaker because it is very demanding both in terms of soil and climate and also in the cellar. Pinot Noir Sanct Valentin, has been part of this line since 1995, and only the best and oldest vineyards have been used. Low yields and attentive care ensure a fine, sensual red wine that stands out for its well-balanced body and fine tannins. It has excellent ageing potential.
Aromas of small berries, violets and smoky vanilla. When aged: notes of porcini mushrooms and truffles.
Spicy, supple, seductive
