Owned by the Fugatti Family, this small Estate is located near Pochi di Salorno, a few miles South of Bolzano, in the heart of Alto Adige, and it represents an ideal geographical extension of Fugatti’s Roeno winery, located in neighboring Trentino.
The Fugatti cultivate both traditional and native grapes of the area: Pinot Bianco, Gewurtztraminer, Pinot Nero and Lagrein.
The limestone and porfyric composition of these soils provide for plenty of refreshing minerality and savory backbone, while Giuseppe Fugatti’s winemaking style aims at respecting the varietal character while maintaining the perfect balance between juiciness and elegance.
The first Von Blumen wines were released on the Market with the 2013 vintage, after several years of attentive experimentation, aimed at understanding the different soils and varieties planted in the 30 acres of the Estate-owned vineyards, which are cultivated and maintained applying sustainable micro-biological techniques aimed at preserving the environment while ensuring the optimal protection of the fruit from mold and rot. The outmost commitment to the highest quality standards as well as the earnest respect of the Environment in which they live and work, are the inspiring values at Von Blumen.
The Fugatti have dedicated this project to their Mother, whose last name in German is Von Blumen.
