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.

For centuries, the area around Lake Caldaro (Kaltern) has been the most important and best-known wine-growing region for the Schiava (Vernatsch) grape variety. One of the winery’s most famous growing sites is the Sattel area, with a vineyard set upon the soft hillsides located along the South Tyrolean Wine Road. It produces a harmonious, silky smooth Schiava that promises an agreeable and fruity drinking pleasure.
