Experience and vision
«If I was asked what winemaking means to me, I would say it’s worth all the time and trouble we’ve invested over the years»
“That’s because tradition ultimately ensures permanence and consistency across generations”.
Winemaking at the Ansitz Waldgries Manor has been ongoing for some 700 years. Dating back to the mid-13th Century, the Ansitz Waldgries Manor was first cited in 1242 document. Our most prestigious wine is named “Roblinus” after Roblinus de’ Waldgries, the founder of the estate. In the centuries that followed, the winery had 14 different owners and, for an extended period, it fell under the ownership of the St. Klara Convent of Hall in Tyrol.
«Here our wines rest undisturbed, gradually developing their potential before finally maturing»
The ancient staircase leading down into the bowels of the manor house takes you to the core of the enterprise: the old cellars.
«Overlooking Bolzano, with clear views of the spectacular Rosengarten Massif, the Waldgries Estate has continued to produce outstanding wines over the years»
The vineyards of the Waldgries Wine Estate lies in the centre of Santa Maddalena/St. Magdalena, where palms, olive trees and figs also grow amidst the vines. Thanks to plenty of hard manual labour, the grapes fully ripen on the steep slopes of the vineyards year after year.
