Indulgence Guide South Tyrol
We are very proud to be referred to as an international top and that by Gault Millau in the first South Tyrolean indulgence guide.

Falstaff Wineguide 2020
Best Alto Adige Wines
Falstaff awarded our Merlot Riserva Vigna Kressfeld 2016 with 95 points. Do not miss their wonderful description of our top single-vineyard wine:
Rich, twinkling ruby garnet. Compact nose with intense fruit; blackberries, fresh plums and forest raspberries, with hints of tobacco. Substantial and firm in approach and along the time, a lot of precise, well-integrated tannins, salty and profound, that ends on ripe berry fruit and spices.
Robert Parker 2020
The renowned Robert Parker awarded our Sauvignon Blanc Oberberg 2018 with 93+ points.
A wonderful excerpt from the evaluation: "(...) beautiful wine and a very special treat for lovers of Sauvignon Blanc. (...) one of the most varietally pure expressions I tasted in this vintage. The bouquet bursts open with electric intensity to show tropical fruit, white peach, passion fruit and green herb. Delicate mineral tones also appear, and the wine ends with nicely balanced acidity."more »
