Grand Estate, Grand Wines

One of Alto Adige’s oldest estate wineries

The Tiefenbrunner Estate Winery in Niclara is among the oldest in Alto Adige. It has been in the family since 1675 and a winery since 1848 – today the Turmhof Castle Winery. It is not without reason that it carries its lordly name, since it is housed in the historical manor of the same name and is surrounded by a park that is worth seeing.

In order to do justice to these surroundings, the Tiefenbrunner Estate Winery has consistently focused upon quality. That begins in the vineyards that are located around the estate winery in Niclara, but also in Cortaccia and Magré. “Some of the rare slopes with a southern exposure are a genuine stroke of luck, since they are virtually ideal for our Bordeaux varieties,” explains Christof Tiefenbrunner, who also obtains for his winery grapes from Aica di Fiè (Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir), Bolzano (Lagrein), and Montagna/Pinzano (Pinot Noir).

“Our vineyards cover the impressive range from 200 to 1,000 meters above sea level, the soils are correspondingly widely varied, and thus we find the suitable location for every variety,” the winegrower says. From their own grapes and those of contract growers, what comes into existence in the Turmhof Castle Winery are complex wines that are typical of their variety and capable of aging which receive the necessary maturation time in the cellar. And because a long history is always associated with great responsibility, that is taken especially seriously in the Tiefenbrunner Estate Winery.

Thus great value is placed upon sustainability and the protection of natural resources – and that didn’t just start today: the winery has been provided with electricity from its own hydroelectric plant since 1910.
