Hofstätter, Elena Walch, the Tramin Winery - these names trigger enthusiasm not only in Italy, but all over the world. And rightly so, because they stand for absolute top qualities and - even more important - for top qualities with unmistakable South Tyrolean character. In the meantime, in addition to these great names, there are one or two other oenological diamonds in the rough to be discovered in Tramin.

Winery J. Hofstätter

Hofstätter is one of the biggest names not only in South Tyrol, but in Italy's wine world in general. With the Pinot Noir wines from the top vineyard Mazzon and the Traminer "Kolbenhof", this winery has set standards and made a significant contribution to the fact that the name South Tyrol is no longer synonymous with mass-produced wine, but has become a synonym for top quality.

Martin Foradori (Source: Hofstätter)

In the 1990s, Martin Foradori took over the management of the winery, and in addition to continuing the quality philosophy of the house, he is concerned about near-natural cultivation and the overall situation of South Tyrol as a wine-growing region. In his opinion, for example, "a site classification should take place in South Tyrol and minimum standards should be set with regard to cultivation methods." As far as the latter is concerned, he tries to "work as close to nature as possible within the bounds of what is economically reasonable." In addition to the economic framework conditions, the overall eco-balance is important to him. "If you have to drive to the vineyard five to six times as often for spraying - as was necessary in the rainy year 2008, for example - you use more diesel and release more pollutants accordingly. I ask myself whether that makes sense. Besides, the soil is compacted more." That he is serious about near-natural or organic farming is shown by the fact that he works certified organically on the Crozzol farm, which is part of the winery. "We use the experience gained here - as far as it is transferable - for our work in all our vineyards."

As a "Burgundy fan", Martin Foradori is particularly concerned about the site classification of the South Tyrolean growing areas. And he is constantly "pushing" for efforts to be made in this regard on the official side as well. With his wines, he himself shows what can be achieved from the first-class South Tyrolean sites. Both his delicate, elegant Pinot Noir from Mazzon and the Traminer from Kolbenhof are masterpieces. Both wines show their true class only with maturity, i.e. after ten to 15 years. They then develop a complexity that only truly great wines can achieve (see also the magazine article "Matured with dignity - the unknown side of South Tyrolean wine"). But Martin Foradori attaches great importance not only to scoring points with the prestigious wines, but to ensuring that the Hofstätter name stands for above-average quality in all the wines in the extensive range - and he lives up to this claim.

Prices range from 7 to 44 euros.

The J. Hofstätter Winery in the Wine Guide


Elena Walch

"Designing independently" has always been Elena Walch's motto when she was running her own architectural office in Milan before her career as a winemaker. She gave up her profession for love. In 1985 she married Werner Walch and became co-owner of the traditional Traminer winery Wilhelm Walch. Which at that time meant: the husband determines the fate of the business and the wife stands by his side. But modesty and restraint are not characteristics that distinguish Elena Walch, and "independent design" was important to her not only as an architect, but also as a winemaker's wife. So she went from being a winemaker's wife to being a winemaker, and one whose name has an exceptional reputation not only in South Tyrol but now throughout the world. Certainly she benefited from the fact that at the end of the 1980s, beginning of the 1990s, the wine trade press was constantly on the lookout for the extraordinary - and a self-confident, attractive woman producing good wines was of course something extraordinary. But: if this attractive, self-confident woman had not produced really good wines, she would have disappeared into obscurity again just as quickly as she had risen. This was not the case - on the contrary: the name Elena Walch has stood like a one in the South Tyrolean wine world for more than 20 years.

Elena Walch (Source: Elena Walch)

The style of the wines is rather modern. This means: moderate use of wood in the top wines - also in the whites, so that international salability is guaranteed, but without sacrificing the character of the wines. And these wines have character, because they come from the best vineyards near Tramin (Kastelaz) and Kaltern (Castel Ringberg). They are produced sustainably, which means with as little spraying as possible. The starting point is that spraying is not done on principle, but only when there is a threat of considerable yield losses that are too much for the substance. And then only what is absolutely necessary. Sustainability is an important topic at the Walch Winery. But sustainability is not only seen from a biological point of view here; it is also important to Elena Walch in economic and social terms. For example, 4 percent of the electricity is generated from solar energy, the water in the cooling system is reused, only water-saving drip systems are used for irrigation in the vineyard; no herbicides are used in the vineyard, and several weather and infection monitoring systems are in place that can significantly reduce treatments in the vineyard. In addition - unusual in Italy for fine wines - lighter glass is used. Some of the corks come from certified forests.

The winery's assortment is quite extensive. No less than 26 wines are offered, divided into five lines: The top line "Grande Cuvée" with the exceptional wines "Beyond the Clouds", "Kermesse" and "Cashmere", the Riserva line with four wines from the Kastelaz and Castel Ringberg vineyards; the "Favorites" from specially selected grapes, the "Single Vineyard" line with single-vineyard wines from the best vineyards and the "Selezione" line, which is the winery's basic line.

The farm-gate prices range from 10 to 43 euros.

The wines of the Elena Walch Winery in the wine guide

Hofkellerei Walch

"We are a small winery, and the only luxury we afford ourselves is to make what we like." So says the charming and lively Ingun Walch, who, alongside father Willi, is responsible for the wines of the Hofkellerei Willi and Gerlinde Walch. And the Walch family enjoys unadulterated South Tyrolean wines and a very special wine that is not available elsewhere: the Gewürztraminer Rosé. Because of its colour, it is called "Rotkehlchen" and officially trades as "table wine"', because the South Tyrolean DOC regulations do not provide for the rosé version of Gewürztraminer. In terms of quality, the wine is anything but a table wine, but in a certain sense it is. Because of the higher tannin content associated with the mash fermentation, it has a more distinctive taste than the normal, white Gewürztraminer and is therefore an ideal and versatile food companion that goes very well with both fine foods and somewhat heartier dishes.

Ingun% Willi and Gerlinde Walch (Source: Hofkellerei Walch)

The basic philosophy of the Walch family with all their wines is "that they should be such that you enjoy drinking a second glass of them. Regardless of whether it is a Gewürztraminer, a Vernatsch or a Cabernet. They should be animating and have a clearly recognisable varietal character. That is why we make all our wines single-varietal and only in steel tanks, tonneau barrels and not in toasted oak barrels, i.e. without using barriques. Not even our top selections." The selection wines bear the name of the Roman god with the two heads, "Janus", and it is decided each year which wines will be bottled as "Janus" wines. "In principle, any wine, even a Vernatsch, can be included in the top selection. However, one is usually there, the Gewürztraminer - after all, we are here in Tramin." The name Janus for the best wines of a vintage came about because Gerlinde Walch, the soul of the house and the girl for everything - including history - came across a fresco cycle in the oldest part of the village during her research for a book about Tramin, in which the double-headed god is depicted with a grape in one hand and a wine goblet in the other. Like two heads, grape and goblet stand for beginning and end, respectively youth and maturity. At Hofkellerei Walch, "Janus" means: the best grapes for the best and most ripe wines of a vintage.

The wines cost between 5 and 15 euros ex farm.

The Hofkellerei Walch in the wine guide

Tramin Winery

Self-confidence, sovereignty and humility - these are qualities that are rarely found combined in one person. They are precisely the qualities that distinguish Willi Stürz. Willi Stürz has been cellar master since the early 1990s and is primarily responsible for the fortunes of the Tramin Winery. Under his leadership, the Tramin Winery has developed into one of the best wineries in Italy, and he himself was voted Cellar Master of the Year by the "Gambero Rosso" in 2004. Willi Stürz is a man who knows exactly what he can do and that he can do a lot. But he also knows very well that he can't do anything without the great vineyards that the Tramin Winery has at its disposal; without the winegrowers who cultivate these vineyards; without the employees of the winery; and without the consumers and retailers who surround the Tramin Winery stand at trade fairs and presentations like a swarm of bees. That is why, despite his successes, he treats everyone he has to deal with with great respect. With such a man at the helm, wines with great personality, individuality and expressiveness are created even in large-scale operations - after all, the Tramin Winery produces 1.8 million bottles a year. The best example is the Gewürztraminer "Nussbaumer", one of the best Traminers in the world. But it is not only the best-known local variety that offers something unique here. With the Pinot Grigio "Unterebner" and the Cuveé "Stoan", Willi Stürz also shows that the Traminer terroir produces exceptionally good wines (see also the magazine article "Matured with dignity - the unknown side of South Tyrolean wine").

Willi Stürz (Source: Tramin Winery)

But at the Tramin Winery it is not only the top line that is of the finest. The classic line also shows every year anew that work here is done very carefully, very skilfully and above all with a great deal of sensitivity. Just as every person he meets is important to Willi Stürz, so is every wine from the Tramin Winery. And there are quite a few wines produced here - currently 31. The range includes the local Traminer varieties Gewürztraminer, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc, the red wines Lagrein, Cabernet and Merlot, which are at home in the deeper cellars, as well as the elegant Pinot Noir from the sites near Neumarkt and Mazzon. Not to forget, of course, the South Tyrolean red wine classic Vernatsch, which is by far not as important in terms of quantity as it used to be, but now convinces with its quality. The "Freisinger" selection from the Tramin winery shows exactly the elegance, finesse and delicacy that one expects from a good Vernatsch.

Since 2010, the winery has presented itself in a completely new guise. In addition to significantly improved energy efficiency, this has also led to the fact that you can now enjoy all the wines in the tasting and sales room with a view of the surrounding vineyards. The wines of the Tramin Winery taste excellent even without this view, but with it you simply get closer to them in the truest sense of the word.

The wines cost between 6 and 24 euros in direct sales (exception: the Gewürztraminer Vendemmia Tardiva/Spätlese "Terminum" for 42 euros in the 0.375-litre bottle).

The wines of the Tramin Winery in the wine guide

Winery von Elzenbaum

The von Elzenbaum Winery is a traditional winery in the heart of Tramin that has been somewhat forgotten lately. At the beginning of the 1980s, this winery was still one of the few South Tyrolean businesses to be mentioned in praise in the Veronelli wine guide. Well, there weren't that many praiseworthy wineries in South Tyrol at that time. But the qualities produced at the von Elzenbaum winery at that time would certainly have prevailed even with greater competition. The winery has the best sites for Gewürztraminer on site as well as vineyard property in South Tyrol's Pinot Noir Grand Cru Mazzon on the opposite side of the valley from Tramin.

The historic wine cellar (Source: Brunner)

Others would really make the most of these assets in terms of marketing. But Josef von Elzenbaum, the man currently in charge of the winery, is not the type. He is a quiet man who primarily attaches importance to vinifying the wines the way his father did. With all the advantages and disadvantages. The advantages: The Von Elzenbaum wines are all impeccable, typical growths from Tramin or Mazzon; finely fruity and elegant - especially the Pinot Noir. The disadvantages: They could all be a little deeper and more complex. One likes to drink them, but one would like to drink them with more admiration. Because the Pinot Noirs from Mazzon and the Traminers from the excellent local sites deserve admiration and should not just be drinkable. Whether something will change in the house of Elzenbaum in this respect - who knows? In any case, this winery is worth a visit. The cellar alone is worth seeing, and the ex-farm prices of the wines are extremely pleasing; they range between 4.50 and 8 euros.

Weinberghof - Christian Bellutti

Christian Belluti doesn't have to worry about running out of work. He is the full-time oenologist in charge of the Peter Sölva & Söhne winery in Kaltern, which produces some of the most interesting wines in South Tyrol's famous wine village (see here). So there is plenty for Christian Bellutti to do. Nevertheless, in 2007, when the new construction of the family vineyard in Tramin was pending, he decided to include a cellar in it that would enable him to process the grapes from his own 2.5 hectares of vineyards himself. At present, about 15,000 bottles are produced annually, distributed among the three autochthonous grape varieties Gewürztraminer, Vernatsch (Kalterersee) and Lagrein. The vineyards are all located in the immediate vicinity of Tramin or in the village itself.

Christian Bellutti (Source: Brunner)

With Gewürztraminer and Kalterersee, Christian Bellutti places particular emphasis on varietal typicity and youthful, fresh aromas. That is why these two wines are vinified exclusively in steel tanks. In the case of Lagrein, the ageing depends on whether the wine is to be marketed as a basic version or as a Riserva. The basic version is only partly matured in wood, but mainly in steel tanks; the Riserva, which is only produced in very good years, is 100 per cent matured in barrique, whereby the duration of the barrel maturation depends on the vintage.

In the next few years, Christian Bellutti would like to increase the production volume to 25,000 bottles a year. "More by no means, because then I would have to go to fairs to sell the wine. But I feel more comfortable in the vineyard and in the cellar. And up to this maximum quantity, the current distribution channels will suffice," he says. And these channels are the regional gastronomy, the family-owned vinotheque in the centre of Tramin and the guests of the house. Because there are three flats at the Weinberghof, and for anyone who rents a room here, Christian Bellutti is happy to be available for a wine tasting. Time permitting...

The farm-gate prices of the wines range from 5 to 12 euros.

Wine profile - Roberto Ferrari

Roberto Ferrari worked for twenty years until 2006 as the cellar master in charge of a renowned winery in the South Tyrolean lowlands, and he has a strong professional curiosity, which is why he has always tasted many wines from other South Tyrolean producers. In the process, he noticed "that in the 90s until the beginning of the new decade, the basic wines and the wines of the middle line all tasted pretty much the same. They were all well made, but to me they were wines without their own identity. They were produced as the market demanded and there was no difference between a wine from Unterland, Merano, Kaltern or wherever. That couldn't be it." So Roberto Ferrari decided to produce wines himself. Wines that should have the profile that he missed in many wines at that time. "Independently of my own activities, the situation has changed a lot for the better in the last ten years. The cellar masters, who used to be mainly interested in the cleanliness and flawlessness of the wines, are increasingly trying to produce independent wines, and most of them are succeeding. I find that pleasing, because the more complex and different the South Tyrolean wines are, the more they do justice to the natural conditions of our growing region." The fact that this development has created competition for his own wines does not bother him - on the contrary: "The current positive situation is a welcome incentive for me to develop my own profile and that of my wines even more distinctively. It is not for nothing that my company is called 'Wine Profile'." Roberto Ferrari wants to banish "superfluous technology" from his wines. That is, "technique that serves to give the wines a direction supposedly demanded by the market. The wine, or the grapes as they grow from my vineyards in a given year, should set the direction. Technology serves me above all to enable me to realise that." So he does without special yeast selections for certain varieties, cold fermentation, etc. For him, technology is important when it comes to safety in winemaking. The sterility of the bottling line plays a central role here, and the wines are relatively heavily filtered.

Roberto Ferrari (Source: R. Ferrari)

Five wines are currently produced: Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and one red and one white cuvée each. The white cuvée is made from Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Traminer and is aged in large wooden barrels. The red wine is a combination of Merlot and Pinot Noir, which does not exist elsewhere in South Tyrol. The grapes come from various vineyards in the Unterland region (Margreid, Tramin, Auer) that Roberto Ferrari has leased, as well as from farmers he can "rely on". This basic structure is to be completed in the near future with a dry Muskateller aged discreetly in wood and a Vernatsch from Tramin.

The wines can currently be purchased in selected wine shops in Tramin (Traminer Weinhaus, Bistro Platzl), Auer (Vinothek Cristall, Vinotheke Vincomm) and Bolzano (Enoteca Gandolfi) as well as directly from the farm in the Residence Traminer Klause, where a tasting room for visitors and guests of the house will be set up from this summer.

The farm-gate prices range from 11 to 16 euros.

Ansitz Rynnhof

The house chapel of the Rynnhof (Source: Bellutti)

When you enter the Ansitz Rynnhof in Tramin, you will see a small house chapel on your right. During my visit, the portal was open, and it seemed to me that this is always the case. The open door invites you to enter, and inside you are greeted by an atmosphere of quiet serenity and relaxed calm thanks to the light, azure colour of the vaulted ceiling and the simplicity of the furnishings. And this atmosphere radiates throughout the entire property. The listed Rynnhof, whose history can be traced back to 1438, has been owned by the Bellutti family since 1928, and Hans Bellutti, with his unagitated, considered and very purposeful manner, is exactly the right man in the right place here. Hans Bellutti has been making wine with his own label, which he also sells outside the Rynnhof, since 2011. The guests of the farm (you can rent flats here) always wanted to take more of the wines they got here as house wines home with them. Over time, therefore, the farm-gate sales took on such proportions that Hans Bellutti felt compelled to make bottle sales official and to bottle wine under his own label. "A pleasant compulsion for me, since I've been making wine practically since childhood and I've always enjoyed making wine more than delivering the grapes to the cooperative." So in recent years, a small cellar has been set up that allows up to 10,0000 bottles to be bottled a year. It should not and cannot be more, as the wine is only made from the cooperative's own grapes.

Hans Bellutti offers four varieties: Pinot Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Vernatsch and Lagrein. The wines are all characterised by their clear lines. They are characterised by the typicality of the respective variety: slender and delicate the Pinot Blanc, finely aromatic and distinctive the dry Gewürztraminer, delicately fruity and with a discreet bitter almond note the Vernatsch, dark-fruity and berry-like the Lagrein. They are all very easy to drink, uncomplicated and, precisely because of this, full of character. The desire of the house guests for more and more wine is immediately comprehensible with the first sip of all varieties.

The vineyards are currently being converted to organic production, which is expected to be completed in 2014.

The farm-gate prices range between 6 and 12 euros.

Ansitz Villa Raßlhof

The Gamper family's Ansitz Villa Raßlhof is best visited from the end of March to the beginning of June and from mid-July to the beginning of November, as the Buschenschank, which is the heart of this winery, is open at these times and offers the unique atmosphere of a 120-year-old winery in addition to good wines and food.

Walter and Anke Gamper (Source: Gamper)

At the beginning of the last century, the Raßlhof was one of the most important wine-growing estates in South Tyrol. But when South Tyrol was annexed to Italy after the First World War, everything changed radically. To the detriment of the winegrowers in South Tyrol. The traditional sales areas in North Tyrol were now in "enemy territory", and in addition the market was flooded with cheap wine from the plains of Veneto. Hard times to market good wine, and all the successors of the winery's founder, Simon Zegler, were "tireless and good workers in the vineyard and in the cellar, but not the entrepreneurial types it would have taken at that time to open up new sales markets", says Walter Gamper. During the 30 years, the cellar was leased to the Brigl winery, which sold the wine produced here - up to 300,000 litres a year. So until 1990, wine was made exclusively for others. When his grandfather died, Walter Gamper was faced with the decision "to do something completely different like my father or to take over the winery. At that time, however, the winery was dead due to the investments that had never taken place, i.e. it was not equipped for the requirements of producing contemporary - i.e. qualitatively demanding - wines. "A walk through the cellar was like a journey back in time to the 1930s." Walter Gamper, together with his wife Anke, has gradually brought the winery back up to scratch. They invested in the quality of the wines and built up the Buschenschank. It is now lovingly integrated into the former winery buildings and, in addition to the wines of the house, offers mostly home-grown farm products, with great emphasis on seasonal dishes. The numerous comments of satisfied visitors in the online guest book of the Raßlhof show that very good things are offered here.

The Gamper family currently produces four wines: Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Kalterersee and Lagrein. Since most of the wine produced at the Raßlhof is consumed at the Buschenschank, they must first and foremost be drinkable, i.e. characterised by clear, animating fruit and of a quality that makes you want to pour a second or third glass.

The wines cost between 6 and 9 euros ex farm.

What applies to the Raßlhof in the middle of Tramin also applies to the Gummererhof, the winery furthest from the centre of Tramin. The best time to visit the Gummererhof is when the inn belonging to the winery is open. This is the case here from 1 April to 15 November. As with the Raßlhof, the atmosphere is unique, but here in a completely different way. The Gummererhof is the highest winery in Tramin with a correspondingly fascinating view and the special atmosphere that is inherent in oenological border areas. This is where the southern charm and buoyancy of the vineyards meet the dark coolness of the forest. It is best to combine a visit to the Gummererhof with a hike in the forests and vineyards above Tramin. Firstly because of the fascinating landscape and secondly because then you get the necessary appetite, which you should bring with you when visiting the Gummererhof. Because here you can enjoy classic, no-frills South Tyrolean fare such as farm omelette with bacon, cheese and tomatoes, Schmarrn with jam, omelette with bacon or cheese, Schlutzkrapfen, cheese and spinach dumplings, bacon dumplings and, in autumn, the Törggel menu with house sausage and surfleisch, slaughter platter, chestnuts and farmer's doughnuts. The wines produced here go perfectly with these hearty dishes, because they are true mountain wines. The whites are racy and slender, the reds hearty. Especially with increasing warming due to climate change, the grapes from the higher altitudes are getting better and better and more and more sought after.

The Gummererhof (Source: Gummerer)

The Gummerer family could have taken the easy way out and sold the grapes they did not need themselves for the wines of their Buschenschank to the highest local bidder at ever better prices. Franz Gummerer, however, decided to make his own wine. The speciality of his wines due to the altitude is simply too important for him to want to limit them to his own consumption and that of the visitors to his Buschenschank. For him, these are wines that are worth making known to a wider audience. He wanted to produce independent mountain wines from his grapes and not have these grapes from his special sites merely serve to freshen up other wines. Two white wines and one red wine are currently produced at Gummererhof. The whites - Pinot Blanc and Gewürztraminer - are characterised by their slender, filigree style. The red wine, on the other hand, is surprisingly strong, dark in colour, racy, with a tart, spicy aroma - a true mountain wine. It was selected in cooperation with the Laimburg Agricultural and Forestry Research Institute for the extreme altitude of the Gummererhof.

The wines cost between 7 and 10 euros ex farm.
