Who is Luis Oberrauch? From a winemaking family, Luis Oberrauchmade his first wine when he was 13 years old. After studying Onologie and Viticulture in Univeristy, he first worked under Alois Lageder, and then Cantina Tramin (probably the best co-operative winery in the world?) for 11 years before starting his own boutique winery in 2017.
The power of 1%! Alto Adige only accounts for 1% of wines produced in Italy, but yet for many, it is the home of the best Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc in Italy. But let us not forget about other native grapes, for example Schiava and Lagrein!
Where is Alto Adige? Alto Adige borders Austria and Switzerland, many residents still speak German as the region has only been part of Italy since 1919. High altitudes, fertile soils, sunny weathers are the hallmark of Alto Adige wines.
