Chardonnay at Alois Lageder: The Chardonnay grape variety was introduced to Alto Adige by Archduke John around 1835 and later promoted by the founder of Italy's first school of oenology. Originally known as Yellow Pinot Bianco, the variety became popular in Alto Adige in the 1980s. The grapes come from sites around Magrè, Cortaccia, Salorno and Pochi that have the chalky gravel soils that are ideal for growing Chardonnay.
The Alois Lageder winery in Alto Adige comprises fiftyfive hectares of the family's own vineyards, which are managed on the basis of biodynamic principles. They farm with a holistic approach that is reflected in their wine-growing activities. Alois Lageder have a long-standing relationships with numerous grape growers and their ambition to create awareness for an agriculture that is in tune with nature.
