"The terroir is the set of those natural and cultural elements that make a wine unique."
Alto Adige owes its uniqueness to a harmonious union of opposites, where north and south and the German-speaking and Italian-speaking area merge into a whole, between whitewashed mountains and fertile valleys, in a climatic area without equal at the crossroads of the Sea Mediterranean and the Alps. It is here that an exciting microcosm takes shape, which in turn gives life to characterful nectars. In the southern part of the province, about 10 km from Bolzano, extends the territory of Oltradige with the Municipality of Appiano on the Wine Route, the largest continuous area planted with vines in South Tyrol, while in the background there is a suggestive hilly landscape of the last ice age, dotted with picturesque towns. Of the 300 members of our winery, most grow their own vineyards in the area surrounding Colterenzio, Cornaiano and Appiano, while others also give their grapes from the area of Bolzano and surroundings and from Salorno, on the border with Trentino. This vast reference area guarantees a wide variety: 12 different qualities grow in vines between 230 and 650 meters high, compared to an extremely diversified soil composition. The barrier of the Alps, 18,000 hours of sunshine a year, the winds of Lake Garda, the warmth of daylight hours and the coolness of the night ones create the ideal conditions.
