Where the earth meets the skies

The Eichenstein Winery gazes out over the Texel mountain range to the north, the Etsch Valley to the south, and the city of Meran from the dreamy heights of 550 metres, where porphyry, quartzite and granite soil, a Mediterranean climate and the Alpine countryside blend and mature into the essence of Eichenstein wines.

Gloria Dei

Named for the World Rose, this elegant, fruity cuvée is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc and Riesling. The Sauvignon brings a spicy note, the Pinot Blanc provides structure and full body, and the Riesling adds a fresh note.

Marie Sophie

The grapes for this Chardonnay grow at 550 m above sea level above Merano. A south-west facing slope allows the Chardonnay to enjoy a lot of sunshine here. The slightly permeable soils are characterised by mineral-rich granite and porphyry.

Knott

The Sauvignon Blanc from the Knott vineyard in Marling is reminiscent of grapefruit and elegant passion fruit, with a deep minerality, a fresh bouquet and a lively acidity on the palate.

Stein

The grapes for this select Sauvignon Blanc grow in rocky terrain at the southern end of the Eichenstein winery: deep, mineral and salty, its surprising freshness provides a pleasing contrast to its sweet, fruity bouquet.

Seppelaia

This Chardonnay Riserva is the quintessence of the Eichenstein Winery. Select grapes and a long period of ageing in barrique infuse this wine with perfection. Full-bodied to the taste, with a bouquet of flowers and honey.

Athos

The cool, fresh microclimate 580 m above Meran provides optimal conditions for this grape to develop to the full. Fine and fruity, with an exceptionally elegant note of peaches and apricots, it is fresh on the palate with a soft mineral finish.

Baccara

The Merlot and Cabernet France red wine cuvée is a classic Bordeaux cuvée: Notes of berries and a lasting finish. Elegant and harmonious, it was christened for a famed rose of the same name.

Amantus

This Pinot Noir grows at an altitude of 520 m above sea level. A fresh, elegant wine with an intense, ethereal bouquet of forest fruit and a full-bodied, lasting palate.

Rosé Carina

Pale pink like the Carina rose, this fresh Eichenstein rosé is made with Trollinger grapes. Reminiscent of cherries, raspberry and a hint of strawberry, it is the perfect wine for balmy summer nights.

Our Treasure:

The Terroir

From up on high at 550 m, the Eichenstein Winery looks out from Freiberg to Meran, the Etsch Valley and the Texel mountain range. The 4-hectare Eichenstein land faces south-west: To the north, the towering peaks shelter us from harsh winds, and the open lands of the south bring the warmth of the Mediterranean climate. The temperature fluctuations between day and night give us an elegant freshness; the mineral-rich  soil abounds with porphyry and granite, remnants of an ancient volcano. These superlative conditions favour the abundant growth of our vines and the success of our grapes. Three parcels of land in Marling (Meran), each around 2 hectares, also belong to the Eichenstein Winery. 

Terroir and

vines

Each vintage is marked by wines of distinct authenticity, a clear articulation of  the Eichenstein terroir: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Merlot, Pinot Noir and  Trollinger develop their identity and expressivity here, and are vinified with skill and passion into first-class wines.
