The Pacherhof wines
Dry and fruity. Natural and exquisite. Rich in minerals and light on the palate. The Pacherhof wines impress with their unmistakable Alpine character. Winemaker Andreas Huber cultivates eight white grape varieties in our vineyards – all of which are harvested by hand at the perfect ripeness – and presses them in our own historic wine cellar. Pacherhof wines are sold far beyond the borders of South Tyrol: in the rest of Italy, in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Denmark, and the US.
Most recently, winemaker Andreas Huber impressed us with a true rarity. For his Private Cuvée, Kerner, Riesling, Sauvignon, and Grüner Veltliner are harvested by hand, fermented according to various methods, and then blended to a harmonious whole. The final product is characterised by a bouquet of elderberry, peach, pepper and delights with its intense saltiness and multi-layered taste.
One of the wines that South Tyrol is most known for: Our Gewürztraminer is reminiscent of the scent of roses and ripe tropical fruits, is fine and elegant on the palate, and leaves you with a pleasant bitter note in the finish.
Vines that are over 40 years old, vinification in oak barrels for eight months: The Sylvaner with its strong character impresses with a smoky note, paired with scents of exotic fruits and pronounced minerality. An exceptionally intense wine.
A noble wine with beautifully balanced acidity and a mineral finish, elegant, harmonious structure with notes of peach, pear, and citrus – well chilled, our Riesling is a wonderfully refreshing treat.
Aged exclusively in large wooden barrels, our Pinot Grigio impresses with fruity notes of apple, Williams pear, and almond. It is an excellent accompaniment to dishes with strong flavours, such as Italian osso buco, South Tyrolean Schlutzkrapfen, mushroom dishes, and cheese.
Grown on mica slate, paragneiss, and quartzite, Grüner Veltliner is characterised by its bright, straw-yellow colour with greenish reflections. On the nose, it is slightly spicy with notes of herbs and white pepper, on the palate, it is aromatic and fresh.
Perfect with a traditional “Brettljause” snack, asparagus, fish, or as an aperitif: Our Sylvaner with its notes of tropical fruit such as pineapple and banana is a wonderfully dry, elegant wine. It is aged and refined for up to six months on fine yeast in steel tanks and in large wooden barrels.
The vines of the Müller Thurgau variety at the Pacherhof are up to 39 years old – they are our oldest vines. Fermentation takes place in stainless-steel tanks at a controlled low temperature. This results in a young, dry white wine with characteristic light notes of muscat.
Wines with character
The Pacherhof wines owe their distinctive fruitiness and minerality to the typical terroir of Valle Isarco/Eisacktal. The fact that you’ll still find the characteristics of the vine and this special terroir in our bottles is the result of the gentle processing of the grapes in our historic wine cellar.
