Elena Walch is a leading, family-run Alto Adige wine estate, which belongs to a restricted elite of forward-looking, quality-inspired Italian wine producers. Encouraging quality and innovation, Elena Walch has stood at the head of the Alto Adige quality revolution and gained local and international esteem for her efforts. An architect by trade, Elena Walch married into one of the oldest and most significant wine families of the region and brought new, modern concepts to the traditional establishment. Now, the responsibility for the family business is being put into the hands of the daughters, Julia and Karoline Walch, already the fifth generation.
The philosophy of the estate is centred on the idea that wines must be the individual expression of their soil, climate and cultivation in the vineyard and that this must be maintained according to principles of sustainability and passed on to the next generation. This requires uncompromising work, taking into account the individuality of each vineyard.
The wines show character, elegance and great personality, reflecting the most professional winemaking. The superb climatic conditions and the excellent location of the vineyards produce fresh and fruity white wines as well as concentrated and velvety red wines.
Cultivar: 100% Pinot Noir
