Winery San Michele Appiano
St. Michael-Eppan winery has been creating great wines of extraordinary quality since 1907. Each vintage is cultivated in harmony with nature and the climate, in order to optimally express each individual grape variety. Work in the vineyard, the manual harvest and a modern production plant guarantee wines of the highest standard. In keeping with Alto Adige’s grand wine tradition, the St. Michael- Eppan wines all reflect their terroir through three lines: Classic Line: Made with archetypal grapes vinified in the traditional way, these wines embody freshness and genuine pleasure. The whites are aged in steel, and the reds in big barrels. Selection Line: The signature crus of the St. Michael-Eppan zone, where vines have been cultivated for centuries. Over the years the “Selection” wines have become absolute references, uniquely reflecting the strengths of small historical plots. These are exceptional wines, which are defined by their expressive bouquets and fine structure. Sanct Valentin Line: The winery’s most prized line which made its first appearance back in 1986. Produced from the best hand-selected, limited yield vines to ensure best quality fruit: these are the raw materials necessary to give astounding minerality, beautiful bouquet and a remarkably elegant structure. Born and bred through the intuition of winemaker Hans Terzer, the Sanct Valentin wines are ambassadors of South Tyrolean excellence and appreciated by wine lovers around the world.
