The catchment area of the winery.

The catchment area of the winery Cantina Valle Isarco ranges from the north in Neustift / Brixen via Chiusa / Sabiona into the southern Isarco Valley at altitudes between 300 and 950 metres. The geological conditions and soil characteristics are accordingly diverse. Granite is the prevailing geological formation in the Novacella Basin. Quartz phyllite comes to the foreground south of that. This slate-like rock weathers relatively easily and forms very mineral-rich soils which give the wines in the Isarco Valley their character and own flavour. In the Klausen area, a dioritic intrusive rock called klausenite provides a slightly different minerality of the soil. In the lower Isarco Valley, the southern part of the Cantina Valle Isarco winery’s catchment area, you will encounter various representatives of volcanic porphyry formation. Different grape varieties are planted in accordance with the geological and mineralogical properties of these soils.

For instance, in the vineyards of the northern Isarco Valley you will mainly find Müller-Thurgau, Kerner and Riesling, whereas you will find Sylvaner, Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer and Veltliner in the middle section of the valley, and Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Nero and Schiava in the southern Isarco Valley.
