The winery is located amidst hillside vineyards in the municipality of St.Magdalena near Bolzano in the Italian wine-growing region of South Tyrol ( Trentino-South Tyrol region). The "Obermosergütl" was taken over by the Rottensteiner family in 1890 and is now in its fifth generation as an established small producer-bottler. In addition to the vineyards around the winery, which was restructured in 2009, the Vigna Grafenleiten in St. Magdalena and the vineyard "Berg" in Obermagdalena are also cultivated. Above Lake Caldaro, the family also owns a vineyard in the Putz Mauer site. The winery has been run by winemaker Thomas Rottensteiner since 2012.
The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.Andreas Essl
