Alto Adige, Italy

We cultivate a range of different sites and soils in six South Tyrolean municipalities. We love to work up a sweat here — and often do. But our efforts are rewarded, or so say wine enthusiasts, who especially love the freshness and authenticity of our wines.

Real wine demands real, manual labour. Because we are pioneering winemakers, we take great pains to ensure the wine in your glass is absolutely top quality.

The result is clean, straightforward, honest wines without frills that will simply sweep you off your feet.

PfitscherGewürztraminer Riserva

94 Points From James Suckling

This intense golden colored Gewürztraminer “Rutter” grows in the best vineyard zones and presents itself with an aroma of roses. This harmonic and lastingly aromatic wine reaches its full development only after several months of aging in the bottle.

PfitscherPinot Nero Fuxleiten

93 Points From James Suckling

The intensive scent of red and dark berries is typical of our “Fuxleiten”. The grapes used for this wine come from Montagna, one of the most adequate areas for Pinot Noir. This red wine develops harmoniously, with a full body and lasting finish. In the glass it gleams with a beautiful ruby red.

PfitscherPinot Nero Matan

96 Points From Gardini

A wine with terroir and well-structured, with an evident elegance and rich in aromatic nuances. The high temperature differences between day and night during the ripening season give this powerfully dark red wine a particularly fruit-toned character with scents of forest berries.

PfitscherCortazo Merlot Cabernet Blend Riserva

The grapes must have a high degree of physiological ripeness, and firm and crisp skins and combine fully mature fruit aromas with velvety tannins. With careful handling by experienced hands and the right choice of oak barrels, the wine can then develop into our Cortazo.
