Eisack Valley: Home to distinct wines and innovative vintners

Steep, small, diverse. The Eisack Valley is Italy’s, and therefore South Tyrol’s, smallest growing area. Protected by the mighty main ridge of the Alps in the north, the unique white wines of the Eisack Valley mature at altitudes of 400 to 850 metres. Significant differences in temperature between day and night favour their quality, as do many hours of sunshine and balanced precipitation.

The wine region extends from Vahrn near Brixen to Ritten near Bolzano in the south. Steep, sun-facing sites determine the landscape. The terrain is characterised by a mixture of slate, gneiss, granite, and gravelly-sandy moraine soils. The high proportion of silicates in the soil gives the wines from the Eisack Valley their characteristic mineral note.

Types of wine

Digestibility and longevity, mineral acidity and intense fragrances: that is what the characteristically fresh wines of the Eisack Valley are known and loved for among connoisseurs. Kerner, Sylvaner, Gewürztraminer, Müller Thurgau, and Veltliner constitute the majority of the cultivated white wines. It is due to the diligence of dedicated winemakers and winegrowers in the occasionally very labour-intensive vineyards that has led to numerous wines from the Eisack Valley receiving acclaim and awards among experts, including those from the family-owned Taschlerhof vineyard.
