The evening downdrafts of the Mendola Massif give the entire terroir of the St. Michael-Eppan winery their character: they ensure the cool nights that give the grapes their extraordinary properties, shaping the fragrance, the unmistakable freshness and longevity of the wines. The downdraft (= “FALLWIND”) is the natural element that blows over the vineyards every day, exerting a positive influence on the climate and supporting the valuable work of the winegrowers.
FALLWIND. The power of nature.

With distinctive characteristics, the Gewürztraminer Fallwind presents itself with an intense bouquet and with fresh, inviting drinkability. The wine is extraordinarily mineral and convinces with notes of ripe, exotic fruits, cinnamon and cloves.

Fallwind. the power of nature.

The “FALLWIND” wines are ambassadors of our terroir and reflect the remarkable strengths of our growing area in a unique way.
Strict quality guidelines, low yields, intense manual work in the vineyards as well as a meticulous and individual vinification in the cellar make them what they are: characterful, precise and unique wines that convince every connoisseur with their varietal characteristics.

The labels of the “FALLWIND” wines have a strong symbolism that is directly related to the growing area. In the centre is an old etching showing a view of the Macaion, part of the Mendola Massif. Above, the merged star and the waning crescent moon from the coat of arms of the municipality of Appiano, symbols dating from the early Middle Ages and lending the image graphic power and expressiveness.
