The power of the mountains of Eisacktal/Valle Isarco is evident at Röckhof near Villanders/Villandro, where Konrad Augschöll has been cultivating white wines and notable red wines since 1998. In the valley, known for its excellent white wines, the independent wine-grower presses about 15,000 bottles of white wine of Müller-Thurgau, Riesling, Veltliner and Cuvée Blanc “Caruess” (from Sylvaner, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer), and also the red wines Zweigelt and Cuvée Red “Caruess” (Zweigelt and St. Laurent). Röckhof, situated at an altitude of 650 metres between vineyards and forests of chestnut trees, has been owned continuously by the same family since the 15th century. Only here has it been possible for an ancient grape vine such as the Furner Hottler, of which Augschöll owns the last 450 vines, to withstand development. In addition, Röckhof produces not only excellent white and red wines but also exquisite brandies and distillates.
