LINE

Classic

This line represents typical South Tyrolean white and red wines, vinified in the traditional method and reflecting our particular microclimate and our sites. After a careful manual harvest, the grapes are vinified in steel tanks, except for the reds. Varietal typicality, pure aromas and lighter drinking enjoyment are the distinguishing characteristics of this line. They promise honest and authentic pleasure with great value for money.

Alto Adige DOC

Edelvernatsch

2019

The indigenous red grape known as schiava in Italy and Vernatsch in Germany has been cultivated in South Tyrol since the Middle Ages and was the most popular wine until the 1980s. The grapes ripen late and therefore need plenty of sunshine until late autumn. The Schiava Nobile is a soft, mildly fruity red wine with an honest expression.
