The Vernatsch grape variety stands for fruitiness and sociability. It is a wine that goes perfectly with South Tyrolean cuisine and a snack.
The small blend with the strong Lagrein grape variety creates a combination of fruitiness and soft tannins.
95% Vernatsch, 5% Lagrein - IGT Mitterberg.
The vines grow on the Heinrichshof on the steep slope with a slope of approx. 50-68% in a south-westerly direction. Due to the slightly westerly orientation, the sun's rays reach the slope a little later in the morning and thus ensure a varied cool and warm daytime climate. In addition, the steep slope causes more solar radiation and at the same time faster drying on rainy days, which is particularly advantageous in the ripening phase (fewer diseases and less rot on the berries).
The top layer of the soil consists of loose and easily heatable weathered rock with a high proportion of clay. In the deeper layers there is a very compact and massive quartz rock, which can also be seen in the wine cellar. The high mineral content of this rock gives the wine complexity and longevity.

Heiner Estate - Heinirchshof
As a small winery it is necessary, or possible, to do almost all the work by hand. This often costs a lot of time and money, but nothing can replace close contact with nature and the resulting product.
The most important goal is to be able to insert nature into the bottle. Heiner's wines must reflect their origins and especially the vintage, the elements that make them so interesting! Working closely with nature means taking on a responsibility, a huge responsibility!
Taking a new path is often tiring, but it's usually worth it!
