An extraordinary position
Here is what makes our white wines unmistakably unique
The grapes for the white Taschlerhof wines are grown in vineyards located in a steep and sunny position, with a south-eastern exposure, and bordering the hills just before Bressanone. In a stretch of land of only 5.5 hectares, there is a difference in altitude of 200 meters, going from 530 to 730 meters above sea level. The vineyard, terraced by dry stone walls, rises almost vertically along the steep and sunny slope. Because the soil has such extreme characteristics, the cultivation is mostly done by hand. This is another unmistakable characteristic that contributes to the quality of the wines from the Taschlerhof winery.
Climate and soil
In harmony with nature
Sunny days and cool nights are typical in the Isarco Valley wine region. Especially in autumn, the wide range in temperature throughout the day gives the grapes their unique fuller and fruitier quality. The poor schist soil gives the wine its mineral character; and with 300 days of sunshine a year, the grapes in the Taschlerhof vineyards are very highly prized.
Free and independent
Individual autonomy as a philosophy
Peter Wachtler is a member of the association “Independent winemakers of South Tyrol”, and manages his winery completely independently. How he tends the vineyard, what winemaking process he uses and how he markets his wines are exclusively his personal choices. Each bottle of wine produced in his cellar is the result of his commitment, skill and passion: a natural product, which bears Peter Wachtler’s personal signature.
