Our winemaker Hans Terzer unfolds his great artistry and experience with the Sanct Valentin wines. Selecting only the most excellent grapes from the vineyards of the St. Michael-Eppan Winery, he creates elegant, intense and complex wines, characterised by their exquisite minerality, finest aromatic, and exceptional ageing properties.
Passito is the Italian term for wines made from grapes that have been dried in the open air and sunshine, and become almost raisin-like. We allow this process to take place mostly in the vineyard – that is, the grapes remain on the vine until the end of the year. The elegant Passito Comtess is delightful: it has intense fruit, soft and creamy body, and a long finish that lingers on the palate with racy, fresh acidity. The youthful, fresh flavors become increasingly complex with the right bottle aging, gradually evolving into muted notes of honey.
