Like a fortress the San Michele-Appiano winery towers above the South Tyrolean wine route. Founded in 1907, the winery has come to be one of the largest and most successful wine businesses of South Tyrol and, indeed, of Italy. The renowned winerys members are passionately dedicated to their task and deeply respectful of the gifts of Nature. Numerous international awards testify to the unrivalled success of their unremitting search for quality. Hans Terzer, chief wine maker of the San Michele brotherhood and widely renowned wine wizard has unerringly paved the way to top quality. Today, the vaulted cellars of the hundred-year-old building store a wide variety of first-class white and red wines, modern labels and time-tested classic wines alike, which are sold to more than 30 countries worldwide.
