Glögglhof

The estate is located in the municipality of St. Magdalena near Bozen in the area South-Tirol (Alto Adige) in the Italian region Trentino-Alto Adige, The house and the cellar of the Glögglhof date from the 13th century and there has always been wine from the associated vineyards. The Weinhof has been family-owned for many generations, but it was inherited several times on the mother's side, which is why the last name of the owner has changed several times. The farm was transferred from Anton Gojer to his son Franz Gojer in 1982. His son Florian is responsible as cellar master.

The vineyards encompass five hectares of vines in-house and 2.5 hectares in lease in the Furggl, Karneid and Rondell locations. They are planted with the white varieties Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Kerner, as well as the red varieties Vernatsch (completely on pergola) and Lagrein. The management is based on environmentally friendly criteria with a complete waiver of herbicides and mineral fertilization, The yield-reduced grapes are selectively hand-picked. Processing is carried out gently using the natural gradient. The degumming is only carried out by sedimentation and cooling. The white wines become part spontaneous fermented with mash contact.

For white wines, Kerner is aged in steel tanks, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Blanc ~ 20% fermented in barriques. They are stored on the until May of next year lees, The fermentation of the red wines takes place in the steel tank with stirring the mash, the expansion takes place in the large wooden barrel with the exception of Lagrein Riserva in barrique. Premium wines are Pinot Blanc Pinot Blanc, St. Magdalener Rondell and Lagrein Riserva. A specialty is the “PIPA XII” from Lagrein, which is produced in the vintage port style. Around 55,000 to 60,000 bottles of wine are produced annually, some of which are exported to European countries, the USA and Japan. The winery is a member of the associations Free wine growers in South Tyrol and FIVI (Federazione Italiana Vignaioli Indipendenti).
