Franz Haas, Südtirol
Franz Haas is certainly one of the most renowned wine producers in South Tyrol. For seven generations, the Haas family have successfully marketed their wines, mostly from their own and leased vineyards, and a small portion of the grapes are also supplied by local vine-growers. The approximately 55 hectares of vineyards are located in the municipalities of Neumarkt, Montan and Aldein. What is special is the height of some vineyards, for the cool-climate vines like Blauburgunder or Riesling it goes up to 1,150 meters above sea level.
The Blauburgunder or Pinot Nero is the great passion of Franz Hass and also the biggest challenge. On this vine one can easily recognize the winemaker's skills.
The eye-catching labels were designed by the artist Riccardo Schweizer. Therefore, the top Pinot carries the addition "Swiss".
