The company "Weinkellerei & Weingüter Josef Brigl" with headquarters in the municipality of St. Michael-Eppan (San Michele-Appiano) in the area South-Tirol (Alto Adige) in the Italian region Trentino-Alto Adige was founded in 1309 and has been owned by the family since then. Around the year 1800, besides the production of wines, a commercial activity was mentioned. The vineyards cover around 50 hectares of vineyards on several family-owned wineries between St. Magdalena and Lake Kaltern. They are planted with the white varieties Weißburgunder, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Ruländer (Grauburgunder), Müller-Thurgau, Sauvignon Blanc and Goldmuskateller, as well as the red varieties Vernatsch, Grauvernatsch, Lagrein, Merlot and Blauburgunder.

After the harvest, the grapes are carefully processed without mechanical movement in the four-storey tower in order to fully emphasize the variety character of the grapes. The wines are produced or marketed in the three lines Classic, Höfe and Meister. The product range includes various wines from the DOC range Kalterersee. St. Magdalener. South Tyrol and Terlaner, as well as IGT wines (country wines). Premium wines include South Tyrolean Chardonnay Briglhof, South Tyrolean Pinot Noir Riserva and South Tyrolean Lagrein Riserva Briglhof. Around a million bottles of wine are produced annually, 75% of which is exported to Germany and Austria in particular. The company is a member of the association "Die Weingut Südtirols".
