You have probably had one or two glasses of wine before. But have you ever participated in a wine tasting? No? Well, the the time has come. South Tyrol is known for its high quality wines, which are exported all over the world. Wine tastings are also offered here in abundance, such as at the Nals Margreid Winery
, which lies exactly between Merano/Meran and Bolzano/Bozen. From April to October, there will be a scheduled visit to the winery every Wednesday at 4 pm followed by a wine tasting. In addition to the wines, another special feature is the winery’s architecture.
The barrique cellar is located above ground, which is in itself unusual. It also looks like an oversized wine box, and is covered inside and outside with oak wood. In the course of its construction in 2011, the old vaulted cellar with cobblestones, wooden beams and columns from the year 1760 was completely restored. This project has paid off: at the Architecture Biennale in Venice, a specialist jury awarded Nals Margreid for their conversion and extension of the winery.
The Nals Margreid Winery is not only outstanding for its architectural highlights, but also scores with a range of award-winning wines. When Gambero Rosso, Robert Parker, Wine Spectator or Decanter & Co. choose the best wines, those of the winery always feature.
