The winery is located in the municipality of San Michele all'Adige in the Trentino area in the double region of Trentino-South Tyrol. The Augustinian monks founded viticulture here around 1145 and cultivated those vineyards that now belong to the estate. In 1885 it was taken over by the Endrici family (in dialect "Endrizzi"). Francesco Endrici (great-grandfather of the owners) was a pioneer in introducing the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties at the beginning of the 20th century. Today, the winery is run by Dr. Paolo and Christine Endrici. The oenologists in charge are Thomas Battisti and Tiziana Piffer.
The vineyards in Trentino cover 55 hectares of vines planted with the white wine varieties Chardonnay, Nosiola, Pinot Bianco (Pinot Blanc) and Pinot Grigio (Pinot Gris), as well as with the red wine varieties Pinot Nero (Pinot Nero), Moscato Rosa (Rose Muscat), Teroldego, Lagrein, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyards are cultivated according to the certified rules of organic viticulture. In this context, the establishment of songbirds in the vineyard for natural pest control as an alternative to pesticides is worth mentioning.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
