Bright ruby red color with purple reflections. Refreshing aroma of cherry and marzipan. Spicy, fresh on the palate, with a touch of almond on the finish.
100% Südtiroler Meraner Hügel (Schiava - Vernatsch) DOC
The grapes grow at 450 meters above sea level, on steep slopes facing south-east. The natural and layered clay soil and the Mediterranean climate give this wine its unmistakable notes.
The winemaking begins with the careful care of the vine. Important is the right choice of reading time. Subsequently, the wines are fermented in stainless steel containers at a controlled temperature. Depending on the variety, the wines mature in large oak barrels or are matured in French oak barrels. This unfolds an unmistakable fine taste, which remains long and clean on the palate. The Haidenhof wines are in style rather fruity and body-accented.
The "Vernatsch" Meraner Hügel is traditionally combined with Tyrolean specialties such as cold cuts and bacon (speck), cheeses or dumplings. A wine suitable for almost all dishes.

The Haidenhof vineyards are the result of the care of several generations of owners and cover an area of 3,5 hectares at an altitude of 450 m, with south-east exposure. The ancient and venerable stone cellar in Haidenhof is over 300 years old and here, once upon a time, wine was sold in bulk. Since 2006, the Erb family has been selling about 15,000 bottles of wine a year. The quality of the wines has increased over the years thanks to the improved quality guidelines. In addition, the variety has also been expanded: today the family business produces 8 different labels, each of them requires special storage and processing. Each wine reflects the characteristics of the grape variety, the growing medium, the weather conditions and the winemaking process.
