    About the winemakers
    Tiefenbrunner
    Trentino-South Tyrol
    Tiefenbrunner

    South Tyrol is different. With the Tiefenbrunners anyway. Nobody else has three hectares of vineyards at 1,000 meters above sea level. No one else cultivates Müller-Thurgau at such high altitudes. No one else has such a Müller-Thurgau, which is often mistaken for Riesling in blind tastings. And no one else names such a dream wine, which is awarded annually worldwide, after a field marshal of the Austro-Hungarian K & K army.

    One could probably go on for a while with "nobody else..." or at least with "hardly anyone else". Because there is much here that is unique. From the vineyards, which reach from 250 m above sea level up to 1,000 m and are divided between three neighbouring villages: Entiklar, Kurtatsch and Margreid (Niclara, Cortaccia e Magrè) and which, due to their respective locations, soil composition and microclimate, also form the logical wine lines of the Tiefenbrunner family. There is no vineyard without a massive rock at the end.

    In the lower locations on the right bank of the Adige, loamy soils dominate, alluvial deposits of former glaciers, with a multitude of rocks that the rivers Eisack and Adige have washed out of the mountains over the centuries and into the South Tyrolean lowlands. In the medium-height area, already rocky subsoil, partly volcanic, calcareous, granite and weathered dolomite with fertile mixed soil and mild climate, for which South Tyrol is famous, but with strong cooling at night by the wind from the nearby Dolomites and Alps, which characterizes this clear freshness and fruitiness of South Tyrol's wines.

    In the high, considerably cooler locations, the marble, porphyry, granite, limestone and dolomite rocks are often covered by less than a metre of soil, which is why the yields are often ridiculously low, but a wonderful minerality brings finesse to the wines.

    "Nature sets the pace for us. We adapt to it and dedicate a site to each variety in which it can develop in the best possible way" explains Christof, who has been managing the Tiefenbrunner family's winery in the magnificent Castell Turmhof since 2000 in the fifth generation with his wife Sabine. There are countless grape varieties in South Tyrol. In the unique Castell Turmhof winery, where even stone vaults from the 12th century are still in use, Müller-Thurgau, Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Vernatsch, Lagrein, Cabernet-Sauvignon, as well as the specialities Gold Muscatel and Rose Muscatel ripen for a total of 29 labels in four wine lines.

    Incidentally, the top wine of the house is named after Baron Franz Philipp Fenner von Fenneberg, who was actually born on Fenneberg, where these unique grapes grow today.

    "Distinctiveness and fashion trends are not compatible. This is why we press wines that can be clearly assigned on the basis of their characteristics and character. They have a very own, clear personality: matured over time and shaped by origin and history." With this credo, which produces many quite different wine specialities, the family and the team around Christof perfectly continues the legacy of father Herbert Tiefenbrunner, one of the pioneers in South Tyrol's viticulture.

    For almost half a century, 40 independent small winegrowers from about 45 hectares have also been supplying the Tiefenbrunners with perfect grapes from "handmade vineyards". This too is hardly to be found anymore. It is hardly surprising that the electricity is generated by a small hydroelectric power station, which was built by the grandfather around 1900. As an Italian journalist, exhausted after the scramble in the mountainous vineyards and overwhelmed by all these unique impressions, with the fresh white wines and a board with bacon and cheese in the "Jausenstation" (what an understatement) in the enchanting picturesque courtyard of the castle he wrote his notes, he chose as his headline: "I am in paradise". SUPERIORE.DE

    "Son Christof, a personality of rare discretion, is responsible for the elegant, delicate and never exaggerated wines, all of solid structure, expressive and always attentive to the characteristics of the grape varieties and different terroirs."Gambero Rosso
