In South Tyrol, more and more wineries are planting Piwi grape varieties. Even the large wineries are no longer spared the trend. Roland Brunner reports on the experiences of the winegrowers and the development of the wines.

Thomas Niedermayr calls his wines, which are made exclusively from Piwi varieties, "the wines of the future". The future already began on the Gandberg farm 30 years ago, when his father Rudolf decided to work consistently organically and to do without spraying of any kind by planting Piwi varieties. There has been a lot of progress in organic farming in South Tyrol, especially in the last ten years. In the production of Piwi wines, however, winegrowers are still generally reticent.
