Imagine an autumn sunset painting the sky with shades of red and orange; so is the Blauburgunder Alto Adige DOC Festival by Meran. This wine is a tribute to the land from which it comes, Alto Adige, a region that has made Pinot Noir one of its signatures. With a rich ruby red color that captures the eye and an olfactory bouquet that evokes wild red berries, this wine is a complete sensory experience. On the palate, its velvety structure and well-integrated tannins make it a full-bodied wine, with a persistence that lingers long after the last sip. Aged in oak barrels, this wine is ideal for pairings with red meats, aged cheeses, and special occasions.

This cooperative, which was founded in 1901 with a few winegrowers, evolved in 2010 through the merger of two wineries: the Burggräfler winery and the Merano winery. Today it has over 360 members who support the renovation and expansion of the cellar. The objectives have always been: the production of high quality wines, which remain faithful to their roots, the care of the vineyards, the origin of the grapes and transparency. The passion of the winemakers for their work is the secret of their wines. The winery is located in a geographically advantageous area between the mountains and the lower Val Venosta, where a vast variety of grape varieties thrive and incredibly varied and exciting wines are produced. The members are located in two decidedly different wine areas: Merano and Val Venosta. The Merano area offers a sunny, fertile and mild hilly landscape with a Mediterranean charm, while the Val Venosta is characterized by an alpine climate, often extreme, with strong temperature variations between day and night and exceptionally steep vineyards with arid soils that reach 900 meters of height. The location, the land and the climatic conditions are examined with wisdom and scrupulousness in order to identify the optimal position for each individual vine. This is how an incredibly varied and exciting repertoire of wines is born thanks to the application of the most modern technologies together with the passion of hundreds of families who make quality their absolute priority every year.
