Montagna, Province of Bolzano

The Alto Adige region, known as the sud-Tirol when it belonged to neighbouring Austria, provides an awe-inspiring backdrop for grape growing. The valley is split by the Adige river and vineyards are planted on either side of the steep mountains, up to 1000 metres.

  • Viticulture


The vines here reflect the challenging extremes of viticulture. Freezing winters, hot summers moderated by cool breezes from Lago di Garda and the surrounding mountains, and significant differences between day and night temperatures provide pristine fruit.


The wines are characterised by crisp fruit and refreshing acidity with real personality and ageing potential. The flagship white, Manna, is a blend of Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Traminer and Kerner offering rich complexity, layered fruit and texture with a long finish. Their Pinot Nero, one of the country’s finest, is delicate and perfumed with wild strawberry and raspberry notes, the palate silky and smooth.

Sadly our friend, winemaker and wonderful human, Franz, died in February 2022. His family, led by Luisa with daughter Sofia and son Franz Jr, continue his legacy.
