A typical South Tyrolean
The Vernatsch grape is used to make the delicate red wine known as St. Magdalener. The traditional area of cultivation is on the hills and steep slopes to the north of Bozen, which are among the sunniest sites in South Tyrol.
Fresh and fine
The St. Magdalener is fuller and more intensive than other South Tyrolean Vernatsch wines and yet still fresh, elegant and uncomplicated. So it is not surprising that more and more young vintners are producing this classic all-rounder.
From the grape to the bottled wine, the quality and origins of the St. Magdalener are strictly monitored. In order to be able to guarantee the very best quality, the Consortium for the protection of St. Magdalener wine has created a trade mark for the St. Magdalener.
The St. Magdalener Event
Autumn is the season of mellow pleasures, and every year producers of the classic St. Magdalener invite wine lovers to “The St. Magdalener Classic”. The St. Magdalener Weekend offers a mix of information and aromas.
