Weingut Griesbauerhof | Alto Adige, Italy

Griesbauerhof is located on the hills of St. Magdalena and St. Justina in Rentsch, Alto Adige, Italy. The ancestral farm has been in the Mumelter Family since 1785. Here, at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level, the vineyards receive a good amount of sunshine and the sandy clay soil creates complex red wines and extra rich white wines.

Georg is the “veteran” on the farm. His ancestors already managed the Griesbauerhof which was handed down from generation to generation, and which is also the home to him.

Today, the winemaker wants to interpret the many decades of experience in a modern way, and to continue the story of the ancestral farm with his own signature. Since it’s always possible to newly interpret traditions, he does not only want to preserve them, but also to advance them.

At the Griesbauerhof they know that the quality of wine comes from the vineyard. They focus on natural and gentle cultivation with love for detail and perfection: in vine pruning, foliage work and regulation of the harvest through early thinning of the grapes. For the “Isarcus”, the vine is cut and the grape is dried on the vine, where the time of cutting and harvesting are decisive.

The Griesbauerhof owns four hectares of vineyards, reaching over the sun-spoiled hills above Bozen. The St. Magdalener, Lagrein, Isarcus and Cabernet Sauvignon grow in these warm locations. The Mumelter Family operates another vineyard to the south of Bozen at the confluence of the Etsch and Eisack rivers, where they grow Merlot and Lagrein. White Burgundy and Pinot Grigio mature at higher altitudes (at 500 m) at the white wine vineyard in Eppan.

Mrs. Mumelter, Georg’s wife, has a passion for growing tomatoes. For her, it is important to work in nature and plants in general, not solely with vines. She grows 30 types of tomatoes of different sizes and colours every year.

Every two years a Tomato Festival is held on the Mumelter farm, where starred chefs create delicious dishes from tomatoes. Part of the culinary experience are, of course, the wines from the Griesbauerhof.

Get to know our winemakers, why we love them, and why it is more important than ever to support them.

Pinot Gris / Grigio

Pinot Gris, or Pinot Grigio in Italy, is a mutation of the Pinot Noir grape. Low in aromatics, Pinot Gris can range in a variety of styles from dry to sweet. In Alsace, France a Pinot Gris may be rich, full-bodied, richly textured, and high in alcohol. Whereas in Italy, Pinot Grigio may be much lighter with zesty citrus and green fruit flavors. Either way, if you’re looking for an easy white wine to sip on any occasion, Pinot Gris is the way to go!

Alto Adige, Italy

Alto Adige is Italy’s most northerly wine region situated in the foothills of the Alps. It boasts its own DOC (regulated geographical region under Italian Wine Law) labelled Alto Adige DOC. The vineyards here are planted on terraces, most with high altitudes and a large diurnal range making this region prime for aromatic whites and light-bodied red wines. The most notable grape you’ll find here is Pinot Grigio. Traditionally, Pinot Grigio is made in a dry style with a light to medium body, high acid, and citrus flavors. Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, and Schiava are also grown with this region.
