South Tyrol: Manincor, The Sustainable Wine Estate in Caldaro

Manincor, a 400 Year-old Wine Estate

From the Schloss Hotel Korb to Manincor, there is half an hour drive. I visit the vineyard with its owner, the Count Michael Goess-Enzenberg, passionate about ecology and biodynamic farming. The setting near Caldaro Lake is superb (picture 3).

Between the vines, wild flowers grow and insects foraging. He applies the principles of biodynamic and focuses on the biodiversity. His key words are respect for the environment and sustainability.

Picture 1: the sap that flows from the size, contains valuable minerals and antioxidants. This liquid is the basis of a line of cosmetic facial, developed by the Count and his family, Acqua Vinea Nobilis, in collaboration with TREHS, the brand of natural cosmetics I discovered at the Vigilius Mountain Resort.

Picture 4: the tasting room, where I tasted a few wines. My favorite: the elegant Cassiano (2009) et Kalterersee Keil, a light ruby color wine to serve cold.



Many thanks for this beautiful invitation to Suedtirol and Lufthansa. As always these opinions are my own.
