GAUN Chardonnay

The name takes us back to the 17th century and the family of the Barons Gaun, the first owners of the Löwengang estate. In 1934, when Alois III saw the excellent results produced by the Chardonnay grape variety in the dolomitic limestone soil on the Magrè talus cone, he decided to purchase Löwengang. 150 years ago, Chardonnay and other international grape varieties were planted there, such as Cabernet, Carmenère and Riesling.
