Lindenburg Lagrein
TOWN, LANDSCAPE AND RIVER

The Lagrein grape variety can be traced back over 600 years. When the Lindenburg vineyards were rehabilitated in the 1950s, the pergola system for training the vines was retained. It provides the shade for the grapes and the deep sandy soils that is desirable in the summer heat, as Bolzano is one of the hottest cities in Italy. It also contributes to the style of the Lindenburg Lagrein, helping maintain the wine’s fruitiness and elegance in spite of its full-bodied character, and contributing precision and longevity.

THE LINDENBURG SITE

Bolzano, the capital of the province of Alto Adige, lies in a wide valley basin created over millions of years at the confluence of several rivers. The Dorf site, on which the Lindenburg stands, is characterized by deep alluvial soils along the banks of the River Talvera. It has traditionally been considered one of the two best sites for Lagrein in Alto Adige. The Lageder family has been living in the historical Lindenburg for three generations now and continues to take care of the over fifty-year-old vines here, which are still pergola-trained.

GUIDED TOURS OF THE LINDENBURG

Lindenburg is just five minutes from the historical centre of Bolzano. The building was modified and extended towards the end of the 19th century. From the garden, one can enter the vineyard with its pergolas. The long, loose-berried, dark red grapes resemble narrow bells hanging from the roof of the pergolas.
