Untermoserhof

Bolzano,
Alto Piemonte, Trentino Alto Adige, Italy

About the producer

Florian and Georg Ramoser form a dynamic father-son duo, driving the vision behind a finely honed collection of wines showcasing Schiava and Lagrein—two indigenous red varieties synonymous with Alto Adige/Südtirol. Perched just above Bolzano, Untermoserhof stands as both the Ramoser family's ancestral home and winery, with roots dating back to 1640. From its vantage point, the estate offers captivating views of the lush expanse of Val d’Isarco/Eisacktal and the awe-inspiring Alpine panorama beyond. On the estate's four hectares of meticulously tended parcels, nestled amidst steep slopes, Schiava and Lagrein thrive, embodying the essence of their terroir.

The bright, floral character of Schiava, the cornerstone grape in the traditional St. Magdalener blend, harmonizes effortlessly with the deeper, more soulful expression of Lagrein. Embracing a philosophy of minimal-input farming, the Ramosers devote themselves to rigorous handwork in the vineyards, navigating the challenges posed by steep slopes and demanding grape varieties. Their unwavering focus on old vines, dense plantings, controlled yields, and meticulous cellar practices yields exceptional results, culminating in wines of unparalleled quality and character.
