Montan - Neumarkt
The region Montan - Neumarkt [Montagna - Egna] is located in the Trudner Horn Nature Park and is characterized by the cultivation of Blauburgunder (Pinot Noir) and west-facing terraced slopes. The history of Blauburgunder cultivation in South Tyrol dates back to the beginning of the 19th century, with the two wine villages of Montan and Neumarkt establishing themselves as among the most renowned Blauburgunder regions in Italy.
Due to its geographic location on the right side of the South Tyrolean Lowlands [Südtiroler Unterland; Bassa Atesina], this region experiences a later sunrise, but benefits from intense afternoon sun that lasts until the evening hours. As a result, the midday temperatures are moderate, providing ideal and preferred conditions for the Pinot Noir grape variety. The nights are cool, and the vineyards are ventilated by the Ora wind from Lake Garda.
The foundation for uniqueness
The soil profile of the region Montan-Neumarkt [Montagna - Egna] is very sandy and clayey on the surface with a high humus content on dolomite and porphyry rock.
