“In 2004 I bought a plot of land which was once used to grow Goldmuskateller. I reactivated the vineyard because I am convinced that, with its gentle character, my Goldmuskateller could become an aperitif wine that exactly matches today’s zeitgeist.”
Goldmuskateller is a white grape variety that was probably brought from Greece to Italy in the Middle Ages. The berries are a golden yellow and have an unmistakable aroma of their own. This grape variety must be grown on sunny slopes to ensure optimum development of its typical aroma.
