The Valle Isarco winery is the youngest and smallest cooperative winery in South Tyrol and the northernmost in Italy. Their philosophy is to produce wines rich in minerality, fruitiness and uncompromising elegance. The vines grow on terraces between 250 and 1,000 meters above sea level, this means that the work is tiring and often only manual. However, working in harmony with nature and respecting scarce natural resources is crucial. Thanks to the altitude and the late harvest, the vines can take advantage of many autumn days with still high daytime temperatures and cool nights, optimal conditions for obtaining fresh, fruity and mineral wines. The winery is famous for its excellent Sylvaner, Kerner, Müller Thurgau and Grüner Veltliner and are recognizable thanks to their stylistic profile and unmistakable acidity structure and their extremely marked typicity. Quality is fundamental for the Valle Isarco winery and knows no compromises.
