TWC - THE WINE COLLECTION 


In 2018, St. Michael-Eppan Winery introduced the concept of the new line “TWC - The Wine Collection”.

"TWC - The Wine Collection" label history began when an exclusive harvest selection was assigned to the care of Hans Terzer to discover the talent and longevity in each single variety.

Today, with "TWC - The Wine Collection" St. Michael-Eppan offers limited productions of about 3,000 bottles per grape variety.
Only the memorable vintages will be in this collection. Premium selected grapes, a new idea of winemaking and a dedicated label: resulting in great sensory emotions from a privileged prospective.
