THE COMPANY

Tiefenbrunner fully represents the history of winemaking in South Tyrol: the “Linticlar” estate is the first mentioned in official records dating back to 1225; in 1848, the Turmhof was entered in the commercial register as a winery, making it one of the oldest in all of South Tyrol. Herbert Tiefenbrunner, who approached the art of winemaking at the age of 15, started his own bottling business in 1943, aided by his wife Hilde. In 2000 Christof and his wife Sabine, the fifth generation of the Tiefenbrunner family, took over full management of the estate and today they are also supported by their two children Anna and Johannes. The estate covers 25 hectares in Niclara, Cortaccia and Magrè, between 250 and 1,000 meters above sea level; it also can rely on grapes from 55 hectares of historic vintners. The mild climate, slightly clayey soils with a high lime content are the perfect basis for vineyard development that are located on the western slope of the Bassa Atesina, benefiting from optimal microclimates and exposures. The flagship of the winery is the vineyard at 1,000 meters on Mount Favogna where the Feldmarschall von Fenner, the highest Müller- Thurgau planted vineyard in Europe, originates, confirming Tiefenbrunner’s great skill and foresight as one of South Tyrol’s leading wine interpreters.

Trentino-Alto Adige

Bassa Atesina

South Tyrol, the southern end of the Tyrol, is the northernmost wine region in Italy and one of the most vigorous and interesting. Production is concentrated in the plain of the Adige Valley, with an altitude ranging from 200 to nearly 1,000 meters and showing endless variations in climate and in the varieties of grapes grown. The climate here is mild, the soils slightly clayey and high in limestone.
