Wine is South Tyrolean bliss

South Tyrolean wines are the result of a harmonious interaction, plenty of Mediterranean sunny days and cool alpine nights.
Refreshing and fruity white wines as well as red grape varieties such as Vernatsch and Lagrein, which have been cultivated for more than hundred years in South Tyrol, are characterized by their distinctive aromas. But also classic red grape varieties such as Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet feel at home in South Tyrol.

Wine recommendation:

Zweigelt 2011 – Marinushof - Growing area: Schlossberg/Kastelbell 650 m
Zweigelt is a typical Austrian grape variety that is highly suited to cultivation in the Vinschgau Valley.
It combines the advantages of its parents, i.e. the body of the Blaufränkisch grape with the
elegance of the St. Laurent. The 2011 Zweigelt from the Marinushof estate has a captivatingly
pronounced aroma of berries and plums: it is tangy and very harmonious on the palate. It enjoys a natural
sweetness; an impressive finish, marked by noble aromas, rounds off the harmonious overall impression.

More than 45% of all grape varieties that grow in the South Tyrolean vineyards are white grape varieties. The production is led by Pinot gris, Pinot blanc and Chardonnay that constitute 60%. Thanks to the ideal weather conditions and the special soil also grape varieties such as Gewurztraminer, Sylvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Riesling, Sauvignon, Veltliner or Kerner are characterized by their typical taste full of character and are used for the production of high quality sparkling wines.
