Klein aber fein
In South Tyrol, in Kaltern - Caldaro, nestling in the hilly countryside between vineyards, surrounded by the Alps, on the famous South Tyrolean Wine Route, you will find the Tenuta Ritterhof vineyard. This small but dedicated winery has been owned by the Roner family from Tramin - Termeno since 1999. The estate is managed by Ludwig Kaneppele, husband of Karin Roner, owner and managing director of Roner, a company famous for its distillates.
The knowledge passed on over generations and the traditions handed down, which strive for the harmony between nature and modern wine technologies, favoured by Mediterranean climate and soil conditions, are the basis for the fruity white wines and full-bodied red wines of the Tenuta Ritterhof winery. The grapes come from the estate's own 7.5 hectares of vineyards and 35 hectares of further vineyards, which are exclusively cultivated by contracted winegrowers. They are produced in the winery, which has been completely modernised and renovated in 2012. The resulting wines are also characterized by their particular varietal-typical flavour profile.
