Sauvignon

2017

Sauvignon 2017 “The Wine Collection” is the third Sauvignon to be presented in this young collection. TWC comprises only the most perfect varietal wines which are kept to a very limited output. The Sauvignon is definitely the white grape variety that is, without doubt closest, to the heart of the St. Michael-Eppan winery and Hans Terzer.

EXTRAORDINARY LIMITED  AUTHORS' EDITIONS

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.
