Alois Lageder - Lagrein

LAGREIN

First mentioned in association with Alto Adige in a historical document dated 1370, this native variety is an icon of wine-growing in Alto Adige. It is the result of a natural cross of Teroldego and another native grape variety and is a relative of Syrah. Lagrein flourishes in the hot sites in the Bolzano river basin where the soils are high in sand content, gravel and porphyry.
