Loacker South Tyrol

Loacker South Tyrol

Family run winery producing wine following an ancient culture and tradition

Product ID: 32962
Description

South Tyrol's wine history goes back to well beyond the Roman period. The region was part of the Roman province of Rhaetia and its wines were in high demand among the eternal city's patricians. Now, some 2000 years later South Tyrolean wines are more popular than ever thanks to a 20 year-long strive to maximise quality in both the vineyard and cellar.
The Schwarhof farm lies on the soft southern exposed hills facing the bowl where Bolzano is.
This farmhouse was occupied for the first time in 1334 and wine production here reflects an ancient culture and tradition.
Rainer Loacker, who has been in charge of the organic cultivation of the grapes since 1979, found bread to eat here, and suffice it to say, it was an interesting challenge. His pioneer practices over time brought a reinvigoration of the health of the soil, while the vines ever so slowly became more resistant to adversity by way of homeopathic remedies.
The farm produces high quality wines, able to conquer any wine lover. Only when wine, in its complexity, has accumulated information in the course of the life of the vine, is it able to be useful to the soul, the spirit and the...

His pioneer practices over time brought a reinvigoration of the health of the soil, while the vines ever so slowly became more resistant to adversity by way of homeopathic remedies.
The farm produces high quality wines, able to conquer any wine lover. Only when wine, in its complexity, has accumulated information in the course of the life of the vine, is it able to be useful to the soul, the spirit and the body.
The dream and desire of Rainer Loacker is to leave, by way of his consistency and diligence, a lasting trace, thanks to the moment when wine is tasted and joy, peace and friendliness are shed.
This philosophy, transferred to contingent things, has forged the Schwarhof farm over the course of 22 harvests, here the heart and soul find a special harmony and the capacity to produce good things.
The winery is organically certified and part of the Italian Organic Wine Route. Since 1979 the farm has been using organic viticulture.
