Vines Riesling ( %)

Color: Straw yellow with greenish reflections.
Smell: The nose is elegant with notes of yellow fruit such as peach and apricot and citrus notes.
Taste: The palate is fresh, lively and balanced with good persistence enriched by mineral aromas.
Food pairing: Perfect with fish and shellfish first courses, sushi, raw fish and risotto.

Harvest: Strictly by hand between early and mid-October.
Vinification: After the harvest, the grapes are processed with great care and transported in large acacia wood barrels where fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures.
A refinement of ten months follows on coarse lees, always in the same barrels. After bottling the Riesling for another 12 months is stored in the company.

Falkenstein

The renowned Falkenstein winery, owned by the Pratzner family for 400 years, is located on the orographic left of the Val Venosta, on the so-called Rocca del Falco, which dominates the village of Naturns from above. The company is located near Mount Sonnenberg and extends with its 12 hectares of vineyards on a hill in a sunny area at 650 meters above sea level. The particular climate, with hot days and cool nights, lends itself perfectly to the cultivation of the varieties Weissburgunder (Pinot Bianco), Blauburgunder (Pinot Nero), Sauvignon and Gewürztraminer, but above all of Riesling, so much so that Falkenstein's Riesling is considered one of the best in southern Germany. What was once a farm and winery has been transformed over the years, from 1989 to 2005, into an exclusively winery, with annual production of about 90,000 bottles. In 1995 Bernadette and Franz Pratzner decided to abandon the cultivation of apples, typical of the Venosta Valley, to devote themselves exclusively to viticulture, a difficult choice given the obstacles to the success of the company. Franz Pratzner, a man of great experience in the vineyard, armed with passion and courage, believed in his project despite the objective difficulties of an almost prohibitive climate and rocky terrain with dizzying slopes. Also in this case, as for Valtellina, Val d'Aosta and Cinque Terre in Liguria, we can speak of heroic viticulture. The rows, in fact, find their place on an impervious ground, supported by dry stone walls, which make the processing decidedly demanding, but possible thanks to the terraces set up with work and lots of patience.
