Alois Lageder’s great grandfather founded the winery over 150 years ago in Alto Adige, Italy. In 1934, the family acquired the Lowengang estate in Magre and continued adding other prime Alto Adige vineyards. Now in its fifth generation, the company is led by Alois Lageder. His brother-in-law Luis von Dellemann, is the winemaker. Today Lageder owns 185 acres across a variety of mesoclimates. In the higher elevation Alpine climate, Riesling, Muller-Thurgau and Gewurztraminer grow well. Farther downhill, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Bianco find enough warmth. On the valley floor, where temperatures exceed 90F in the summer, red grapes thrive. There are a variety of soils mostly a mix of limestone and clay, with some volcanic porphyry. Lageder divides production into two brands Alois Lageder and Tenutae Lageder. The wines of the Alois Lageder are made from grapes grown in their sustainably farmed estate vineyards and those purchased from respected sustainable growers. Tenutae Lageder wines are made from certified biodynamic estate vineyards belonging to or controlled by the Lageder family.

Tasting notes
The wine offers pronounced aromas of red berry, cherries, spices and mineral notes with refined tannins and good length on the finish.

Technical notes
Pinot Noir from the Sanct Apollonia Vineyard, planted on loam and chalk, is fermented in stainless steel tanks, after which 50% of the wine ages for 12 months in French barriques (34% new).
