This variety, which has been cultivated in South Tyrol since the middle of the 19th century, is now one of the leading white varieties in the region and thrives in all wine-growing areas of the country, preferably in cooler locations between 300 and 500 meters. Our classic Pinot Blanc, whose grapes come from selected locations in Margreid, Kurtatsch, Salurn, Buchholz and Tisens, expresses the complexity of South Tyrol particularly well.

History of Alois Lageder
The Alois Lageder winery was established in 1823 and today it is managed by the family’s fifth and sixth generation. The winery is located in Magrè, in the southern part of the Alto Adige region. With a holistic approach, creativity and an experimental spirit Alois Lageder produces wines that reflect the diversity of Alto Adige. We are committed to biodynamic wine production and continually expand our knowledge in this area. In addition to the family owned vineyards (135 acres / 55 hectares) the winery collaborates with around 80 grape growers (247 acres / 100 hectares).
Alois Lageder believes that organic and biodynamic cultivation greatly enriches the landscape. One of the goals of biodynamics is to build a closed farm organism and to increase diversity and fertility. The winery collaborates with mountain farmers who bring their cows and sheep in the winery’s vineyards during the autumn and winter months, following the old tradition of transhumance. This helps to increase the vitality of the grapes and the biodiversity.
