      “Riff” Pinot Grigio delle Venezie DOC 2019 (BIO)

      From the 2018 vintage onwards, the popular RIFF Pinot Grigio delle Venezie will not only be certified organic, but will also be given a new look by the Austrian artist Nanna Prieler. With a total of five different motifs, the creation of the mountain landscape is told in the segments of stylised ammonites on which the vines for the Pinot Gris RIFF stand today: From the ocean with its coral reefs to the unique terroir, in which many fossils of former ocean inhabitants can still be discovered today.

      Bright light yellow with greenish shimmer. In the smell fine fruity, flowery-mineral with delicate notes of tropical fruits. On the palate, RIFF Pinot Gris is precise, lively and fresh, with a medium body and a harmonious finish. A perfect accompaniment to light Mediterranean dishes or simply solo on a balcony or terrace.

    About the winemakers
    Alois Lageder
    Trentino-South Tyrol
    Alois Lageder

    Fresh wind in the probably most famous winery of South Tyrol. With Alois Clemens Lageder as managing director, the sixth generation is entering the almost two hundred year old family winery. He is supported by his two sisters Anna and Helena, who are responsible for events, marketing and sales. Alois Clemens Lageder studied sociology and economics. After various stations in Germany and abroad, where he deepened his education in viticulture and oenology, he joined the family business in 2015. Here he now continues what his father Alois - who is considered a pioneer in the field of biodynamics - started: He is gradually converting the farm to biodynamic farming methods. Nothing will change in terms of quality; on the contrary, there is probably no biodynamically working winery far and wide that is more successful.

    In practice, this means dispensing with chemical-synthetic plant protection and using preparations and homeopathic teas as remedies. This also means that the winery works closely with local farmers who bring their cows, cattle and sheep to graze in the vineyards of Alois Lageder during the autumn and winter months. This revives the old tradition of transhumance. It helps to increase the vitality of the vines and the biodiversity in the vineyard. The family now cultivates a good 55 hectares biodynamically, and the express goal is to motivate all of the approximately 80 winegrowing partners from all over South Tyrol to switch to biodynamic cultivation by 2023.

    The historical roots go back six generations to Johann Lageder, who in 1823 laid the foundation stone for today's company in Bolzano. His successors began to press wine themselves and bought the first vineyards. The most successful was Alois III, who in 1934 acquired the Löwengang estate in Magreid, the southernmost tip of the South Tyrolean Wine Road, and motivated numerous winegrowers to deliver the grapes to him. In the mid-1970s, Alois Lageder, together with his sister and brother-in-law Luis v. Dellemann, took over the estate, and led it to success with his strict focus on quality. He always relied on collaboration with winegrowers who were friends of his.

    In 1995, the new cellar building was constructed according to the most modern building biology methods and with renewable energy from water, geothermal energy and solar power and became a showpiece. The cooperation with artists became inspiration and the winery became an event location.

    The range is as varied as the locations in the Adige Valley, which was once a huge glacier that dug its way south from the Alps and Dolomites, bringing with it all kinds of rock. From volcanic porphyry, granite and quartz, petrified corals of a primeval sea to gravel, loam and clay, you can find everything here. "If you plant the right grape varieties in the right locations, not much can go wrong," said Alois Lageder with a smile. Cold winds from the mountains alternate with warm breezes from the south, and the ventilation and temperature differences are ideal. Warm days, cool nights and moderate rainfall are the secret of success throughout South Tyrol. Here in the southernmost part of course even more so. And even though Lageder's portfolio includes about 80% white wines, two red wines, in addition to the Chardonnay "Löwengang", are responsible for the worldwide fame of this wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon "Cor Römigberg" and the Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) "Krafuss" have become cult wines and part of the success story of South Tyrol, even part of the wine story of Italy.

    Since 2017 Alois Clemens takes another, very creative step with the birth of COMETS. It is the designation for wines from mostly very rare or in South Tyrol not at all or no longer native grape varieties in the smallest edition, which embody the joy of experimentation, innovation and the play with components. He describes the exciting project as follows: "Some COMETS burn up and are discarded again, while others can become fixed stars and independent wines of the range. Each of the COMETS is unique, quasi like a fingerprint, and the labels of each bottle are individually designed: A comet's tail, painted on with a finger." SUPERIORE.DE
