BOCKENAU | GERMANY
Wine estate Schäfer-Fröhlich
The family cultivates 21 hectares of vineyards, 85% of which are planted with Riesling and 15% with Burgundy. The traditional steep slopes of Bockenauer Felseneck and Stromberg, Monzinger Halenberg and Frühlingsplätzchen, Schlossböckelheimer Felsenberg and Kupfergrube with their different rock soils form the basis for distinctive, authentic wines. The symbiosis of ripe Riesling fruit and the minerality typical of the site gives the wines their typical complexity and independent character.

Europe’s highest sparkling wine cellar is located in Mölten in South Tyrol: ARUNDA produces 130,000 bottles a year using the classic method at 1,200 metres above sea level. The ARUNDA family works closely with winegrowers at various altitudes who cultivate classic grape varieties such as Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

WINE - OUR PASSION
Like all treasures, our PINO 3000 is a rarity that we create with total dedication for people with a taste for the extraordinary. Every wine has its own story. And our PINO 3000 tells an exceptional one: Three top vintners from Austria, Germany, and Italy have combined their best Pinot Noirs in the PINO 3000 and sent it on a fascinating journey – to the summit of the Gaislachkogl. In the 007 location ice Q, at 3,048 m above sea level, it matures in noble barrique barrels. The PINO 3000 in limited edition is a particular rarity. And with every drop, it transports you into its exciting world as the highest Pinot Noir in the Alps.
