Working entirely in sync with nature, Alois Lageder are trailblazers of sustainability in Northern Italy.

According to current winemaker Clemens, it's all about understanding nature in the vineyard, and making full use of its potential by creating a closed farm organism. But the winery's approach extends beyond their own fields; Lageder partner with 80 growers, and have converted 50% to biodynamics so far. The winery also strives for zero carbon production, using solar panels, natural temperature controls, and banning plastic and foil from their bottling process.

When properly cellared, this will drink well for another 12-18 months.

Very hard to find this wine in the UK at the moment with most of the production hitting the US market. We have sourced a parcel and took every bottle we could, giving you a superb retail of £9.99, well below the next best price of nearly £15.
