Südtirol / Alto Adige, Italy

Weingut Stroblhof – a historic mountainside estate that includes a luxury hotel, spa, restaurant, and renowned winery, developed over the centuries around a medieval watchtower first mentioned in 1325.

Today, the ruins of the “Alt-Firmian” tower provide a windbreak for bathers in the estate’s natural pool, and shades the entrance to the modern, clay-paneled earthen cellar burrowed into the mountainside below.

Stroblhof has operated as a health resort and winery since the middle of the 19th century, with its well-known “Strahler” Pinot Bianco produced for nearly 200 years. Multiple generations have seen to continued improvements and increasing quality, with Josef Hanny first recognizing the potential for Pinot Noir in the 1970s after he took over the estate from his father. With Hanny’s passing in 1993, his daughters Rosmarie and Christine took the helm and continued their father’s work.

Rosi’s husband Andreas Nicolussi-Leck took over viticulture and winemaking in 1995, and building upon the critical acclaim for the estate’s Burgundy varietals he replanted the 3.5 hectares of vineyards with greater vine-density, and retrained entirely to Guyot, further improving the quality of the harvest.

Thanks to its position at 500 meters altitude on the southeast-facing foot of the Mendel Mountains, both Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir thrive here in the soils of red clay, porphyry, and limestone, and both have been grown in this area since the late 1800s.

With the addition of a new 2-hectare vineyard in nearby Kaltern, the next generation of winemaking is beginning. Having grown up in the winery at his father and mother’s side, Thomas Nicolussi-Leck is taking on winemaking duties, having bottled his first vintage of a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot from the unique hilly site, while assisting Andreas in the continued production of Stroblhof’s storied wines.
