Laimburg Winery, in the province of Bolzano, is part of one of the towns on the South Tyrolean Wine Route, one of the oldest and most beautiful in Italy, which begins in Nalles, passes through Bolzano and continues to Salorno, on the border with Trentino.
Since 1975 the winery has been part of the "Laimburg Experimentation Center", a provincial body that deals with applied research in agriculture.
The winery cultivates 20 hectares of vineyards on land of various kinds at an altitude between 200 and 750 meters and its goal is to be able to bring into the glass the character of the individual autochthonous varieties and the different vines, in line with the best tradition of the Dolomites. There are two production lines: the "Vini del Podere" and the "Selezione Maniero".
The former are traditionally matured in stainless steel tanks and are markedly fruity vintage wines with a strong varietal character. The latter are vinified individually and in part selected, subjected to aging in small oak barrels in order to maximize their aging potential.
Each wine of the Maniero Selection has a proper name that identifies its peculiar characteristics and underlines its personality and originates from the Ladin legends of the Dolomites, expression of the particular traditional South Tyrolean culture. The sound of these names, their accentuation and their meaning reflect the distinctive trait and peculiarities of each wine. The emblem with the red-gold eagle placed on the back of the label of the Maniero Selection wines is an expression of the particular provincial vocation of the Podere di Laimburg.
The stylistic subdivision into "Vini del Podere" and "Selezione Maniero" testifies to the commitment of Podere Provinciale Cantina Laimburg for a continuous growth in quality levels.
