Fired with enthusiasm for a century and a half with no signs of slowing. Three generations live, work and make wine together here. We stand for clean, straightforward wines coming from high altitude vineyards. Thanks to the cool climate they get expression, finesse and their own identity.
Preserving tradition and risking new adventures. This is why we displaced the Pfitscher estate from the heart of Montagna into the middle of the vineyards – creating a new winery which merges discreetly with the landscape despite of its modernity. This should cause that our main player wine is always in the foreground. As part of the construction work, we became aware that there is the certificate of the South Tyrol CasaClima Agency. Since the requirements largely overlapped with our ideas, we decided to pursue it. To obtain In order to give our wines their own character, a good foundation is important to us. We create these through our selected vineyards in the areas Montagna, Egna, Cortaccia, Fiè allo Sciliar and Ora.
Montagna is an idyllic place on the oriental hang just above Rocca Castelfeder. An area rife with steep slopes, precious terraces and a mild, alpine-continental climate, here grows in about 500 meters above sea level especially our Pinot Noir.
In Egna the vineyards sit atop a peak of sand and scree deposited by the Trodena river over centuries. It is simply perfect for Lagrein, Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer.
Also in the valley are our vineyards in Auer. They benefit from the heat in the summer and the grapes love the hot and dry soils. Here our Lagrein and Chardonnay can unfold their best and develop their unique style.
Warmed by the sun, our Cortaccia vines are situated on the western side of the Bassa Atesina valley. This is a top site for particularly heat-loving wine Cortazo.
Our highest-lying vineyard in the municipality of Fiè allo Sciliar rises as high as 900 metres above sea level. Sauvignon and Müller-Thurgau are the varieties that positively thrive here, with big temperature differences allowing them to develop their characteristic aroma and liveliness.
