Vineyards

Gaierhof’s wines resemble the taste of Trentino: smooth, fruity and easy to drink. Our wines are produced with grape varieties selected in the best vineyards located between the province of Trento and South Tyrol. With the best winemaking technology, we preserve and enhance the aromas and minerality of the grapes of this territory, symbol of the wines of Northern Italy.

Trentino

Trentino is a sports heaven. Dominated by the Dolomites, the magnificent chain of Alpine mountains that has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2009, this region offers a landscape perfect for rock climbing, hikes, and winter sports.

Trentino, comprising the southern area of the Autonomous Region of Trentino-Alto Adige, enjoys a wide range of natural features, a cornucopia of peaks and valleys, with a mild climate tempered by Lake Garda.

Gaierhof has always been located in Roverè della Luna, the northernmost commune in the province of Trento. The town boasts a deeply-rooted winemaking tradition and enjoys its own distinctive climate, perfect for white grapes such as Pinot Grigio and Traminer. The Togns are today the foremost family business representing the commune of Roverè della Luna, ambassadors to the world of the local vitivinicultural tradition.

Trentino vineyards

Trentino’s viticultural wealth is the fruit of its unique geographical composition. An impressive range of white and red wines are produced in this most “nordic” of Italy’s regions, each of them linked to the particular character of an individual valley.

In general, the qualities classic to Trentino wines are represented by the crisp freshness of their bouquet and by the elegance of their palate, making them very approachable, and never heavy. The fruity Pinot Grigio, aromatic Moscato Giallo, crisp Müller Thurgau, intense red Teroldego Rotaliano, and the classic-method TrentoDOC sparkling wine comprise the icons of Trentino winemaking.

Independent Grapegrowers

The supplying of grapes by Trentino grapegrowers constitutes a very characteristic local tradition. In 80% of the instances, the growers deliver their crop to cooperatives, of which they themselves are members, while the remaining 20% make wine themselves or sell the grapes to private wineries such as that of the Togns.

Many of the families that today supply their fruit to Gaierhof are descendents of those who began their relationship with Germano, Luigi Togn’s father. Over those years, they kept their supply agreements on their oral word of honour, a very traditional type of contract in local agriculture: payment for the grapes is postponed until the feast-day of San Martino, on 11 November, when most of the wine from the previous vintage has been sold.

Gaierhof currently has 160 suppliers, who farm 170 hectares of vineyard in the main growing areas throughout Trentino-Alto Adige: the Valle di Cembra for Muller Thurgau and Riesling Renano, the Piana Rotaliana for Teroldego, Roverè della Luna for Pinot Grigio, Traminer Aromatico, and Moscato Giallo, the Colline Avisiane for Nosiola, Pinot Nero, and Sauvignon, and the Vallagarina for Marzemino, Chardonnay, and Moscato Giallo.
