Imagine an alpine mountain curtain opening to reveal a sparkling jewel: this is the Riesling Alto Adige DOC Graf - Meran. This wine is a tribute to the land it comes from, grown in vineyards situated between 600 and 750 meters of altitude in the areas of Merano and Val Venosta. The light and permeable soil gives the wine an elegant structure and a distinctive olfactory profile. On the nose, peach and apricot notes are perceived, while on the palate shades of fruit and spice emerge, in a perfect balance between acidity and body. Ideal for pairings with fish dishes or for relaxing moments on a summer evening.

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.
