Always Taking a Step Forward
From Intuition to Precision
In the small winegrowing region of Alto Adige, there is no room for massive-scale production. There is only one direction: upwards! That’s why all of the independent winegrowers, estate wineries, and winery cooperatives focus on quality. They make courageous decisions with new plantings, they willingly restructure old and established plots, and they minutely study the optimization of the grape variety for each small location. And in the end, they dress up their ambitions in extravagant architecture as part of the total wine experience. That is how Alto Adige’s winemaking brings a noteworthy concentration of top wines to the international wine scene – as well as exquisite pleasure in the wine.
“In just a short period of time, Alto Adige has become Italy’s top white wine region. The requirements for this were the Alpine-Mediterranean climate, the quality of the soils, and the enviable locations of the vineyards. For its success, Alto Adige wine can thank these happy conditions, a generation of meticulous, diligent winegrowers, and the commitment of imaginative cooperatives.”
