Founded in 1907, St. Michael-Eppan is one of the finest co-operatives in Alto Adige, Italy. Located in the village of Appiano, the co-operative works with more than 355 growers, all of whom share a commitment to ecological balance and vineyard sustainability. Most of the fruit is harvested from vineyards situated between 1,000 and 1,600 feet in the southern Tyrol in the villages of Appiano, Caldaro and Mazzon. St. Michael-Eppan was one of the first wineries in South Tyrol to introduce barriques into their winery. In 2000, Gambero Rosso and Slow Food wine guide named St. Michael-Eppan as the best Italian winery of the year and its long-time winemaker Hans Terzer as one of the ten best winemakers in the world. The portfolio is divided into three categories: the Classic Line - archetypes of their varietals and appellations with outstanding price to quality ratio; the Cru Line - unique terroir based wines from extraordinary single vineyard sites and Sanct Valentin - top tier wines from rigorously selected grapes.
Technical notes
The grapes were harvested from high elevation vineyards planted on chalky and loamy soils. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, the wine aged on its lees for six months.
