Kastelbell, Val Venosta, Alto Adige
Old vines, planted at 650 meters (2,133 feet) elevation in striking terraces climb the slate-rich mountainsides in pristine Val Venosta. This is the area of the Stelvio Natural Park, and adventurous travelers come to the area to hike and ski. Heiner and Sabrina Pohl run a mixed farm here in Sonnenberg, with their wine, apples, distillery, and their wine shop making a perfect destination for a farm holiday. The small, sustainable farm crafts vibrant wines, brimming with character and charm as they express true alpine elegance. Many hours of sunlight, a dry climate, and the prehistoric slate are ideal for Kerner, Pinot Blanc Riesling, and Zweigelt, and a magnificent Pinot Nero. The finish is long, and the quantities are tiny!
