Pfitscher

Pfitscher

The Pfitscher family, with roots in the territory for over a century and a half, has seen their business grow significantly, becoming the first Italian winery to receive the prestigious CasaClima Wine quality seal.

With vineyards located between 300 and 900 meters above sea level in five municipalities in Alto Adige, primarily in the homeland of Pinot Nero, the Pfitscher family produces wines that reflect clarity and linearity, thanks to the high-quality standard derived from high-altitude vineyards.

The family, characterized by authenticity, pragmatism, and clarity of ideas, created a new estate in 2011 that harmoniously integrates with nature, featuring a structure that, despite its clean lines, highlights the true protagonists: Nature, the landscape, and the wine.

The winery offers a spectacular panorama of Bassa Atesina and the surrounding mountains, while attention to detail, such as the use of dark blue color, guides visitors to the Pinot Noir cellar, a spectacle not to be missed.

Hofstätter

Hofstätter

Martin Foradori Hofstätter‘s vision, focused on respect and contemporary revaluation of existing elements, translates into sophisticated architectural innovations at the family winery.

Founded in a 16th-century palace, the viticultural history of Hofstätter began in the early 1900s with Josef and Maria Hofstätter, who operated the “Schwarzer Adler” restaurant within the palace. Over time, the space became too small, undergoing expansions over the decades. In the 1990s, Martin Foradori Hofstätter developed vertical spaces, creating a modern wine tower in 1997 next to the church bell tower, a symbol of Termeno. This bold intuition resulted in a harmonious juxtaposition.

In 2013, Hofstätterintroduced new types of concrete barrels, representing a significant innovation in Alto Adige.
