Abbazia di Novacella Sudtirol Alto Adige Kerner 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

More than 850 years after its foundation, the Augustinian Canons Regular monastery of Neustift, its community of Canons and staff, still carry out a wide variety of duties, all of which could be described as pastoral care in the wider sense. Today the Neustift Canons Regular still serve more than 20 parishes where their work involves pastoral care duties. In addition to classic pastoral care work they also continue to carry out their education mandate in various forms. The Neustift school boarding house opened at the beginning of the 1970s to accommodate almost 100 boys. At the same time the tourist centre opened, responding to the growing importance of tourism for the monastery and South Tyrol in general which became evident in the increasing numbers of visitors who continue to come year after year to become acquainted with Neustift and join in guided tours of the monastery complex. This also led to the foundation of the present-day Novacella Education and Conference Centre. The monastery still maintains itself economically through the cultivation and sales of agricultural products such as culinary herbs and fruit. In addition the wines from the Novacella/Neustift vineyards and monastery winery are famous throughout the world and have scooped the most coveted national and international awards.

Abbazia di Novacella:
The Abbazia di Novacella is located in the northern-most winegrowing region on the southern side of the Alps. The mineral-rich soils, the elevation (1,970 ft – 2,950 ft) and the cool climate are all factors which explain the intense aromas and flavours as well as fruity, mouth-watering acidity found in our wines produced from the typical white Valle Isarco valley grape varieties.

The Abbazia di Novacella is located in the northern-most winegrowing region on the southern side of the Alps. The mineral-rich soils, the elevation (1,970 ft – 2,950 ft) and the cool climate are all factors which explain the intense aromas and flavours as well as fruity, mouth-watering acidity found in our wines produced from the typical white Valle Isarco valley grape varieties. The long drawn-out ripening period extending well into the autumn is crucial. The most widely-grown vines in our vineyards around Varna just north of Bressanone are Sylvaner, Kerner, Gewürztraminer and Veltliner. The monastery also owns vineyards in the warm central region of Alto Adige which supply the red grapes. They include the full-bodied, savoury Lagrein from the Mariaheim vineyard in Bolzano and red wines from the Marklhof estate in the cool rolling hills of Cornaiano to the south of Bolzano where the grapes are harvested, crushed and the wines matured. The wines include Vernatsch, Pinot Nero and the lusciously sweet Moscato Rosa (‘Rose Muscat’, the name deriving from the variety’s typical scent of roses). With over 850 years of experience coupled with state-of-the-art winemaking technology, top-class expertise and the enormous enthusiasm the wines generate among our employees, we succeed in producing wines bursting with flavour and varietal character year after year, to the joy of wine-lovers worldwide.
