With the exception of the Bolzano Winery and the Muri-Gries Monastery Winery, the wineries in the Bolzano area are long-established family businesses of manageable size. All of them have a pronounced sense of hospitality and a good feeling for traditions that are worth preserving, which can be seen, among other things, in the fact that the Bolzano classics Lagrein and Vernatsch or St. Magdalener are the most important wines everywhere.
In its current form, the Bolzano Winery was created by the merger of the Bolzano winery cooperatives Gries and St. Magdalener in 2001. With an average of 3 million bottles per year, the Bolzano Winery is the largest cooperatively organized winery in South Tyrol. The fact that size and top quality are not mutually exclusive is demonstrated by the wide range of very good and excellent wines that are produced here every year (see here ).
