ABOUT THE WINE: Müller Thurgau (a hybrid of Riesling and Madeleine Royal crossed in 1882 in Geisenheim, Germany) came to Alto Adige in the first decades of the twentieth century, where it is among the lively, quaffable, lightly aromatic white wines. A pleasant tone of nutmeg that varies in intensity depending upon the vineyard location is typical of the variety. The Müller Thurgau zones around Kurtatsch are found for the most part on exposed mountain slopes (Penon, Hofstatt, and Graun - up to 900 m./3,000 ft.) where the large temperature differences between day and night lend the grapes a distinct aroma. This wine, which is both spicy and lively, is reminiscent of a freshly mown Alpine meadow. The high mountain acidity is harmoniously interwoven with the fruitiness, yielding flavors of yellow peaches, honey, nutmeg blossoms, hazel nuts, and peach blossom tea.

The classical bacon is produced of the best piece of the leg. Refined with spices, mountain herbs and salt, the bacon is pickled for 20 days. After a cold smoke phase with beechwood filings the bacon sides are matured for a total of 5 months in our pure mountain air at controlled temperature.
Our family has been producing oil since the XIX century. The pleasure of tasting this product weds itself to the profound knowledge of extra virgin olive oil, handed down generation to generation. The choice of the best, cold pressed, Italian products, allows a full flavoured, but not too piquant, product to be obtained. Ideal for meat dishes and mixed salads.
Crystal-clear with a deep, green-yellow colour, this wine enjoys a unique type of aromatic fullness. Delicate hay and mild nutmeg fragrances typify the fine completeness of its scent. Sensations also recur on the palate, where the charming nature of this Müller Thurgau also comes to fruition. An uncomplicated wine in a simple style, fresh and easy to drink. Served chilled, it is a good accompaniment to the most varied of dishes, especially freshwater fish.
