Lentsch winery is located in the south of South Tyrol in the municipality of Branzoll at the foot of a large alluvial cone in the middle of vineyards and orchards. Our best vineyards are located on the alluvial cone, which stretches between huge porphyry walls towards the Adige. The joy in viticulture that has been cultivated for generations and the harmonious combination of soil and climate give our wines a special character. Viticulture has a long tradition in South Tyrol. It shapes the landscape, architecture and gastronomy of the country. It is a source of income for many South Tyrolean winemaking families who have understood how to capture the uniqueness of the respective growing area in wine. In harmony with nature and thanks to modern cellar methods, individual wines of character and size are created that self-confidently express their origin.
