The Pfitscher Winery in Montan
Goethe once said “Life is too short to drink bad wine”. And that’s exactly why you should visit the Pfitschers in Montan. Here you risk nothing: a cellar full of good wines. We are convinced that Goethe would have liked it.
You are on the main road from Montan and then follow the sign “Weingut Pfitscher”. It goes off to the left, steeply downhill. Here you will have two questions: Are we in the right place? And: What can we expect? But soon you will see the winery right in front of you. A really beautiful, modern building, you will think. Not an everyday winery. Modern and inviting.
Once you enter the winery, you will be surprised once again: WOW! What a view! The tasting room has a huge window front facing west. From here you have a really great view of the South Tyrolean lowlands and the surrounding mountains. At sunset it gets really kitschy, a dream. Inside you will notice the modern style: clear lines without any frills, and that’s just as well.
But you are not only here to admire the architecture and furnishings, you also want to taste the good wines. There are plenty of them here. The Pfitscher family will certainly be delighted to give you a tasting. The winery is a family business. Three generations work together here. The concentrated load of experience on one side and the fresh wind on the other side form a perfect symbiosis. They work here with passion and enthusiasm. But passion and enthusiasm alone is not enough to produce the tens of bottles that are produced. There is really hard work behind it. The vines of the winery are situated in very steep locations and most of the work is done by hand. This can make you sweat. The things you do for a good glass of wine. What comes out of it, unmistakable taste and top quality.
What is particularly important is honest and clean wine. The flagship wines of the winery are the Pinot Nero Riserva “Matan” and the Sauvignon “Mathias”. The winery has already received several cool awards from Falstaff, Gambero Rosso, James Suckling, … This is something to be seen and above all to be drunk! By the way, the Pfitscher’s themselves are also quite nice to look at…
