Vineyards at the heart of the South Tyrolean Unterland
Our family owns some 25 hectares of vineyards in Entiklar, Kurtatsch and Margreid – at between 250 and 1,000 meters above sea-level. We also receive grapes grown on about 45 hectares of land by forty other wine growers, who have been loyal suppliers for many years now. This diversity calls for careful management of the natural resources and detailed knowledge of the character of the terroir.
“Nature sets the rhythm. We take our cue from her and give every variety a site where it can develop best.”
The mild climate and slightly clayey soils with a high limestone content provide the right geoclimatic foundations. The microclimate, exposition and slope of the vineyards on the west side of the South Tyrolean Unterland take it from there. Harmony between man and nature, and a perfect match between grape variety and site are all part of our daily work in a spirit of responsibility in the vineyard. For us, progress is about supporting the processes of nature with the know-how of generations past and present, careful mangement and painstaking manual work.
The top address among our vineyards is situated on the Fennberg. Literally: At about 1,000 meters above sea-level, the 3-hectare site is considered the highest Müller-Thurgau vineyard in Europe. It is home to our multiple award-winning FELDMARSCHALL VON FENNER, an impressive example of what is possible even on exposed sites with the living art of the caring vintner.
