Imagine walking into an ancient library, where each book is a tale of aromas and flavors. The Lagrein Riserva Alto Adige DOC Segen - Meran is just like that: a precious volume in the wine library. Produced in the areas of Merano, with vines aged between 20 and 30 years, this wine is a masterpiece of winemaking. The color is a dark garnet red, almost as if it's trying to tell a story of passion and mystery. On the nose, you'll find complex notes of licorice, leather, cherries, and bitter chocolate. In the mouth, the structure is well-defined, making each sip a chapter of a story you don't want to end. This wine pairs beautifully with red meats and aged cheeses, making it the ideal companion for a romantic dinner or an evening among friends.

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.
