Girlan

Situated not far from Bolzano, amidst gently rolling slopes, sunny and still tranquil on the Monte di Mezzo between San Michele and the Valle dell’Adige, at an altitude of 450 to 550 meters above sea-level, lie the majority of our vineyards in Girlan. Towards the north, the Alps protect our grape vines from the cold wind.

The soil is gravelly and argillaceous and low in nutrients.Heavy temperature fluctuations between day and night – especially in the autumn – give our wines a fine, distinct bouquet, and enhance their durability.

These are the ideal prerequisites for a wide range of grape varieties. The unique characteristics of our terrain enable us to produce incomparable wines having a distinctive and pronounced character. In particular their mineral, fresh, and clear structure and authenticity set them apart.
