Grand and dignified, St. Michael-Eppan Winery has been enthroned in the center of South Tyrol’s most important wine-growing community for over a century. In 1907, the 340 winemaking families that form the backbone of the winery joined forces to create St. Michael-Eppan Winery. Their great passion is the wine with which they have been associated for generations. Offering knowledge, tradition and passion, each individual contributes to the fact that the winery is blessed with outstanding grapes, which are processed in the cellars with meticulous attention to detail and a great deal of skill. Today, the winery has 355 hectares of vineyard and 2.5 million bottles production every year, it has become worldwide renowned. In the year of 2000, it was awarded as the best ´Italian winery´ by I Vini d’Italia´, the Gambero Rosso and Slow Food wine guide. Meanwhile, Mr. Hans Terzer, Master winemaker, famous oenologist and forerunner of South Tyrolean white wines,was named as one of the best 10 Master winemakers in the world. Gewurztraminer has experienced a true renaissance in recent years. This grape variety with reddish berries originated in our neighboring wine village of Tramin, and can be found growing today in almost every production zone around the globe. Unlike many of the world's Gewürztraminers, this one is vinified dry. The result is a fruity yet spicy character that you won't soon forget. Its aromatic richness, characterized by delicate spicy notes of cloves and delicate roses, makes it absolutely captivating.
