Winery Description

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, representing the fifth generation of family ownership, the winery combines tradition and innovation.

The roots of the winery go back to Bolzano in 1823, when Johann Lageder laid the foundations of the activities in which the family are involved today. Winemaking has been a part of the history of the Lageder family for more than a hundred and fifty years. 

The vineyards that belong to the family (about fifty hectares) are located in Magrè, Cortaccia, Termeno, and Caldaro, and are cultivated with biodynamic methods, controlled and certified by the Demeter Association.
