Tenuta Vinicola

T he family of the Rottensteiner's is one of the most ancient families of South Tyrol and its connections to the wine lasts for many generations. This shows also the family name, which derives from the red-coloured rock of the mountains around Bolzano, the porphyry.

Hans Rottensteiner founded the winery in 1956 and today its lead by his son Toni and his grandson Hannes. The return to our ancestry and to the continuation of traditions are important guideposts for our daily work. Wine enjoyment – this is Toni and Hannes' motto. Elegance and drinkability are at the forefront of their wines.

Along with this, the typicity of the wine, the expression of the variety and terroir, is clear and recognizable. This is the reason why most of these wines are varietal and the focus is on those vines typical to this region. Especially known are St. Magdalener and Lagrein. We are convinced that the harmonious feeling that resides in the vineyard and wine cellar is also reflected in the wine itself. Around 100 persons work attentively year-round making certain that the quality of the grapes that goes into the bottle is unaltered, and each of these individuals is important to us. A very careful handling of the grapes in the vineyards and in the wine cellar is an absolute necessity.
