The origins of LagreinKlosteranger is the name of a historical site with an area of 2.7 hectares. It is a passion, challenge and the premier league for work in the vineyard. Enclosed by the monastery wall, the Klosteranger is ideal for our single-site project. In the last twenty years, that has involved research, planting, careful selection and continuous improvements. The outstanding quality and permeability of the soil have remained unchanged over the centuries. The nearby River Talfer delivers pure alluvial material, and the sun maintains a generous supply of warmth and light well beyond the end of summer. So conditions are perfect for an outstanding wine: our Lagrein Riserva Vigna Klosteranger.
Well-watered and sun-blessedThe monastery land in the historical Lagrein growing district of Gries-Moritzing guarantees the continued existence of structures that have developed over centuries. Our two vineyards (8.2 hectares) with their old and valuable vines in an ideal terroir still give this suburb its special charm today. It is a cultural heritage and a valuable natural treasure, which we are preserving and consolidating for the future. Lagrein is very much at home here. That is something you can taste in our Lagrein Riserva Abtei Muri.
Excellent area for good winesAppiano in the Upper Etsch district boasts the perfect terroir for the classic Pinot varieties, especially for Pinot Blanc, although Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio also give a convincing demonstration of their full potential on the sunny plateau of Eppan Berg. Pinot Blanc, Gewürztraminer and another South Tyrol variety, namely Schiava, flourish in the vineyards above St. Michael Dorf.
The single site principle
Launching into a new generation
The single-site principle offers full transparency with regard to a wine’s origins and quality - from the vine to the glass. It guarantees that a vintage is made exclusively from the best grapes from one and the same site. With the targeted development of our top-quality sites in Gries-Moritzing and Klosteranger, we produce wines that are the consummate expression of the quality and typical character of the Lagrein grape variety. Here Lagrein achieves its full potential in wines that are truly distinctive and expressive. MURI-GRIES is thus ushering in a new era for Lagrein wines – with the single site principle as the platform for our passion for Lagrein.
