Presented by Clemens Lageder, Lageder Estate, Alto Adige, Italy

The family estate Alois Lageder is a synonym for the highest standard of quality in viticulture and winemaking, for a sustainable, holistic corporate philosophy, and for a wide spectrum of cultural and artistic activities. Founded in 1823, and now directed by Alois Lageder and Alois Clemens Lageder, representing the fifth and sixth generation of family ownership, the estate combines tradition and innovation.

The Alois Lageder assortment of wines represents the extraordinary diversity of the Alto Adige region and its wide range of grape varieties. The wines are made from grapes grown in the vineyards owned by the Lageder family – about 50 hectares – which are cultivated according to biodynamic principles and from grapes grown in the vineyards owned by long-term partnering grape growers. This close cooperation with contractual vintners from different areas in Alto Adige represents a fundamental component of the company history.
The sustainable approach to agriculture was extended also to the winery´s architecture. In fact, “Bringing nature indoors”, was the goal of the construction of the new cellars inaugurated in 1995. The project was soon recognized as the harbinger of a boom in contemporary architecture in Alto Adige.
