Technical notes
Selected vineyards are located on the scree of Magre at an elevation of 750-1,050 feet. Dry, sandy, gravely soil with high limestone content. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel. Aged 18 months in small French oak barrels (50%) and large Slavonian oak (50%).

Producer
Alois Lageder's great grandfather founded the winery over 150 years ago in Alto Adige, Northeast Italy. In 1934, the family acquired the Lowengang estate in Magre and continued adding other prime Alto Adige vineyards. Now in its fifth generation, the company is led by Alois Lageder. His brother-in-law Luis von Dellemann, is the winemaker. Today Lageder owns 185 acres across a variety of microclimates. In the higher elevation Alpine climate, Riesling, Muller-Thurgau and Gewurztraminer grow well. Farther downhill, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Bianco find enough warmth. In the valley floor, where temperatures exceed 90 F. in the summer, reds thrive. There are a variety of soils mostly a mix of limestone and clay, with some volcanic porphyry. Lageder divides production into two brands Alois Lageder and Tenutae Lageder. The wines of the Alois Lageder are made partly from grapes grown in their certified biodynamically farmed estate vineyards and partly from grapes purchased through long-term relationships with respected sustainable growers. Tenutae Lageder wines are made exclusively from grapes grown in the estate vineyards.
