About Tiefenbrunner

Considered to be a benchmark producer in the region, Tiefenbrunner was founded in 1848 and their range of wines including Chardonnay, Müller Thurgau, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon Blanc continue to delight wine-lovers throughout the world.

Their vineyards lie on the steep slopes of the region, one in particular, the Feldmarschell von Fenner Müller Thurgau is at 1000 metres above sea-level, and is trellised with the local pergola and wine frame methods. The winery is located in Entiklar, a hamlet of Kurtatsch and the estate consistently wins many awards in Italy’s most famous wine guide, the Gambero Rosso.

About The Regon: Alto Adige, Italy

Alto Adige is a Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC, or controlled designation of origin) wine region in northern Italy. Framed by the snow-capped Dolomites, Alto Adige is possibly Italy’s most picturesque wine region with vineyards ranging from 228 to 1000 metres above sea level.

Once a part of Austria and known to the locals as Südtirol, Alto Adige is the northernmost wine region in Italy and is home to some stunning, energetic, crunchy wines made from Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Kerner, Sauvignon Blanc, Lagrein, Malvasia, Giallo and Gewürztraminer. While Alto Adige accounts for less than one per cent of Italy’s wine production, it leads the country in DOC-accredited wines, with some 98% of wines falling within the category.
