Alois Lageder

Totally in sync with nature, Alois Lageder are about as biodynamic as you get!

Located in the German-speaking village of Magreid, the Alois Lageder family winery is home to some of the best wines from Trentino-Alto Adige in northern Italy. Their range is hugely diverse: you can go from a beautifully elegant Pinot Noir, to a nothing-like-your-average Pinot Grigio partly made with skin contact for body and texture, to a peachy, concentrated Chardonnay within one tasting!

These wonderful wines are made with a truly holistic approach, plenty of creativity and an experimental spirit by the family’s fifth and sixth generations, Alois and Alois Clemens Lageder.

Committed to biodynamic agriculture, their goal is to create an environment that breaks up the traditional ‘monoculture’ vineyard and instead have a thriving ecosystem. The cattle, donkeys and sheep that graze between the vines and olive trees are the only weed and pest control they need.

“In Alto Adige, we deal with climate change by playing with altitude and finding new grape varieties. A hundred years ago, we had Riesling; maybe in the future we will have Viognier and Assyrtiko”
