About the Winery:

Acquired and managed by the Kerschbaumer family since 1940, the Kofererhof estate has existed in southern Tyrol, a region that is as Austrian in spirit as it is Italian, for over 850 years. In 1995, the winery started to bottle its own wines after having sold its fruit to local wineries for years. Kofererhof’s tiny 5 hectares of vines are located at the base of the Dolomite mountains between 2296 and 2624 feet above sea level. At this high altitude, the variation in temperatures from day to night is ideal, and the carefully tended, high-density vineyards yield intensely fragrant, concentrated and well-balanced wines. Practicing organic, all grapes are harvested by hand and attention to detail is paramount in this limited production winery; total production for the estate is only around 3,500 cases of wine per year. The quality of these wines raises the bar for all whites from Alto Adige.

About the Wine:

Gunther Kerschbaumer is the agronomist and winemaker and the wines produced are typical of this area and more similar to the wines made across the border in Austria than to the traditional Italian whites. Dense plantings combined with altitude, high temperature during the day and cool nights in summer result in fresh, aromatic and fruity wines with a good structure and mineral notes. 100% Gruner Veltliner grown in gravel made of silt and of sand of Morainic origin. Straw yellow hues in the glass, one can expect to find an intense, fruity nose with slight nuttiness on the finish. On the palate, there are fresh, flavorful flavors accompanied by spice and a well balanced finish.
