The Hans Rottensteiner winery is located in Bolzano, a picturesque town in the northern Italian region of South Tyrol. The winery is run by Hans Rottensteiner and his family and is known for its excellent wines, which come the surrounding vineyards.
The Rottensteiner family has a long tradition in viticulture and has made great strides in recent years through their work in the vineyard and cellar. They focus on sustainable and environmentally friendly production, where the terroir and nature are in the foreground. The vineyards are planted on the slopes around Bolzano and benefit a unique microclimate created by the proximity of the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea.
The winery produces a variety of wines, including whites such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, and reds such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Particularly noteworthy, however, are their autochthonous varieties, such as Lagrein and Vernatsch, which originate South Tyrol and are cultivated by the Rottensteiners with much love and dedication.
The goal of Hans Rottensteiner and his family is to produce wines of the highest quality that reflect the terroir and culture of South Tyrol. Through their passion and commitment, they have managed to secure a firm place for themselves in the wine world and are now among the most renowned wineries in South Tyrol.
If you are looking for high-quality and authentic wines that express the terroir of South Tyrol, you should definitely visit the Hans Rottensteiner winery and taste their wines.
The Sauvignon is good as aperitif, with not too heavy starters and most fish dishes. A special combination is Sauvignon with asparagus. Therefore the Sauvignon is also called "Spargelwein" (Wine for Asparagus).
It's a good choice as aperitif, with tasteful starters, grilled fish, seafood, crustaceans and white meat.
The Kaminwurzen (smoked sausages) are mildly smoked and air-dried sausages of beef and pork, a typical South Tyrolean speciality.
