Origin: This variety was first mentioned in 1400. The country of origin is Burgundy in France (Pinot Blanc). In Alto Adige about 500 hectares of Weissburgunder is cultivated.
Area requirement: Weissburgunder thrives best at 400 to 600 mt above sea level. Our Weissburgunder grows in our vineyard Kardatsch 500m above sea level. The early morning sunshine rays quickly dry out the evening dew from the grapes. This delays the harvest guaranteeing a most high sugar content of at least 18°KMW The vines were planted using the pergola- tendrils system in 1985 in a clay-limey soil, which enhances the wine with a beautiful mineral bouquet.
