Arunda Rider

The winery is located in the municipality of Mölten (Meltina) about 20 kilometres from Bolzano in the Italian wine-growing region of South Tyrol (Trentino-South Tyrol). Founded in 1979, the winery is situated at an altitude of 1,200 metres above sea level and is the highest in Europe. The family business is run by Josef (microbiologist, viticultural technician, contact with the winegrowers), his wife Marianne (customer service) and Michael Reiterer (sales, marketing). It is named after a mountain in Vinschgau Valley. Exclusively sparkling wines are produced using the champagne method, which are stored on the yeast for at least 24 months, or up to five years in the case of Reserva qualities. There are no vineyards of their own, but the grape varieties used, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir, come from quality winegrowers from different areas of South Tyrol such as Buchholz near Salurn, Appiano Mountain, Girlan and Terlan. The cultivation is controlled by the Reiterer family. After processing the grapes, the different wines are brought to the winery in Mölten, where the phases of sparkling wine production take place. Different styles of sparkling wine such as Millesimato (vintage sparkling wine), Blanc de Blancs (Chardonnay), cuvées and rosés are produced and marketed under "Arunda Vivaldi". Around 70,000 bottles of sparkling wine are produced annually. Vinegars are also sold.
