  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Some of the most exciting wines of Europe are grown in a tiny valley in the very far north of Italy’s Alto Adige region known as Eisacktaler (or Valle Isarco, in the ‘secondary’ Italian language). These exquisite, textured, icily-structured whites offer intrigue and excitement with their power and complexity and have put this relatively quiet wine region on the map. Master of these wines is Guenther Kerschbaumer who is also proprietor of this tiny estate, made up of a patchwork of little vineyards at 700-800 metres at the foot of the Dolomites. Each of these plots are unique terroirs and are planted specifically to suit to each variety. Although a Kofererhof estate has existed for nearly 900 years, it’s only since grandfather Kerschbaumer acquired it, and his son and now grandson Guenther have plotted and replanted, that varieties like Kerner, Sylvaner, Riesling, Pinot Grigio and Müller Thurgau are sited with such precision. Stylistically, these Eisacktaler whites are quite distinguishable and more Germanic or even Alsatian in style than those vineyards closer to Bolzano. These are whites of greater body and texture than the lower Alto Adige, with perhaps more nuanced and complex aromatics that are still backed with a similar, almost taut structural underlay, mineral notes and piercing acid profile. Organically farmed and run by the Kerschbaumer family since the 1940s using a mix of modern and traditional winemaking practices that respect their grape varieties, these wines are considered by many to be some of Italy’s best white wines.
