Soils

No winery is like any other

The altitudes of between 200 and 1000 m above sea level feature different soils. The autochtonous Lagrein for example, grows on warm gravel and sandy soils, while the white Gewürztraminer matures on calcareous soils. Unique worldwide are the stony soils of Dolomite limestone, which can mainly be found on the southern edge of the Wine Road. They derive from the UNESCO World Natural Heritage site that is the Dolomites. Thanks to their mineralised characteristics, the warm soils with strong permeability to water are ideal for growing characteristic white wines.
