Blog: Merano Winery


South Tyrol

In 1952, courageous and determined Merano winegrowers joined forces and founded the Merano Cellar Cooperative with the task of improving wine quality and increasing sales. Conscientiousness, cohesion, trust of the faithful collaborators led to a healthy and emerging winery with over 200 members and a cultivated area of over 140 hectares. The Mediterranean climate of Merano also allows the many exquisite grape varieties to grow and flourish on the slopes of the vineyards. In the Merano winery, this gives rise to powerful, elegant and pleasant wines.

With the arrival of cellar master Stefan Kapfinger in 1992, a great and sustained development in quality began for the Merano winery. 'Good wines are created in the vineyards, which we can only refine in the cellar,' says Stefan Kapfinger. The passionate cellar master Stefan Kapfinger is a master of his trade. He is a shrewd specialist and has been setting a strict quality line for years. For this he earns recognition throughout Italy for his aromatic white wines, the award-winning sweet wines and not least for the expressive Vernatsch wines. He is concerned about the harmony with nature and the near-natural cultivation, because it improves the balance and thus the vitality of the vines. The cellar master considers it important to find the right grape variety for each location and thus get the most out of it. Stefan Kapfinger also pays particular attention to the further development of his motivated winegrowers with particularly good sites. From bud break to harvest, the winemakers and the cellar master meet regularly, with Stefan Kapfinger modestly putting his own achievements in the background. He has all the knowledge to produce great wines, but never flaunts it. His home is the winding labyrinth of cellars with its countless new and old barrels. - Gerardo [TS06/22]
