The Tauber Winery in Brixen

Richard Tauber is young for a winemaker, yet he has seen a lot in his time. His wines mirror his life, representing the sum of his experiences and the end point of a steep trail. And steep also describes the locations where he grows his wines, on terraces around the city of Brixen that generate the essence of the Tauber winery’s products. And what binds his life, his locations, his wines and his future? Pure excitement!

Steep terraces

The Tauber winery’s locations

The five plots of land where the Tauber grapes grow are steep and terraced, two of the most desirable characteristics when it comes to winegrowing. Their division into five plots also has its advantages, including different soils, altitudes and weather conditions that create multifaceted wines whose core features are shaped by external circumstances, then intensified by their internal conditions.
