The estate Falkenstein is located on the orographic left side in the lower Venosta valley at 650 meters above the sea level on a sunny hill above the village Naturno.
The vineyards have been managed over the years with great passion by Franz and his wife Bernadette Pratzner. Within 1989 and 2005 the fruit and wine-growing estate has been transformed into a mere wine-growing estate. Where previously have been planted apple trees and Schiava (Vernatsch), these days there are cultivated vines on an extension of 12 hectars.
In the steep vineyards, with prehistoric rock soils, are now growing Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Noir. The average production of the year is approximately 90000 bottles. The vineyards are located between 600 and 900 meters above the sea level.
