Villscheiderhof - Florian Hilpold
Villscheiderhof, situated on a hill near Brixen/Bressanone, is known as a "Buschenschank" as well as for its outstanding wines. After taking over the farm in 1997, farmer Florian Hilpold cultivates the establishment at 700 metres above sea level together with his wife, his parents and their two children. In a short time, Villscheiderhof with its livestock was transformed into a fruit-growing and wine-growing estate. The steep vineyards facing south and east are stony, lime-deficient, meagre and water-permeable. This forms ideal conditions for our three grape varieties Sylvaner, Kerner and Gewürztraminer, typical of Eisacktal/Val d'Isarco. These are fresh, fruity and elegant white wines with an excellent sugar / acidity balance. The grape harvest has been pressed in our own wine cellars since 2007. The wine is available in our own wine tavern at the estate, but also commercially as well as at fine restaurants.
