Rottensteiner Hans

The estate is located in the municipality of Bozen (Bolzano) in the Italian wine sector South-Tirol (Region Trentino-Alto Adige ). The traditional family is one of the oldest in South Tyrol and has been associated with viticulture for many generations. This is also borne out by the family name, which is derived from porphyry, the red colored rocks of the mountains around Bolzano. Today's company was founded by Hans Rottensteiner in 1956 and is now run jointly by son Toni and grandson Hannes.

The vineyards cover 90 hectares of vineyards. They are planted with the white varieties Weißburgunder, Müller-Thurgau, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Grigio, Goldmuskateller, Silvaner and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as with the red varieties Lagrein, Schiava Gentile (Vernatsch), Cabernet and Blauburgunder. The wines will Terroir and typical of the variety mostly unmixed under the DOC names St. Magdalener and South Tyrol (especially Lagrein). A specialty is the "Passito Cresta", a sweet wine made from dried Gewürztraminer grapes from the family-owned Kristplonerhof. Around 450,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
