Founded in 1909, St. Michael-Eppan is one of the finest co-operatives in Alto Adige, Italy. Located in the village of the same name, the co-operative works with more than 350 growers, all of whom share a commitment to ecological balance and vineyard sustainability. Most of the fruit is sourced from vineyards situated at 984-1,640 feet in the southern Tyrol – Appiano, Caldaro and Mazzon. 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. In 2000, Gambero Rosso 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.
