The small vineyard Stubengüter is located in the capital of South Tyrol in the district of Bozen-Dorf near Castle Maretsch. The over 90-year-old vines produce Lagrein grapes of the highest concentration with the classic aromas of this area.
Bozen is located in a valley where warm air accumulates, resulting in high average daily temperatures, while nights are milder. The Lagrein grape is labor-intensive and prone to fungal diseases, thus requiring continuous ventilation, especially after rainfall. The Ora wind from Lake Garda dries the Lagrein grapes during the day, while the cold fall winds from the Dolomites cool them in the evening. These ideal climatic conditions meet the requirements of the autochthonous grape variety.
The foundation for uniqueness
The sandy soil consists of alluvial material from the Talfer river in Bolzano and quartz porphyry boulders. The loose, permeable soil heats up quickly in the sun and retains the warmth.
