Amidst the undulating vineyards of the Überetsch valley, on a sunny slope above St. Michael in Eppan, a gravel road leads through the vineyards to Hof Gandberg. The view says it all. Hof Gandberg is the source of ‘Thomas Niedermayr’ wine estate. It is here that grapes ripen and find their way into the cellar and bottles.

“Anyone specialising in natural wine production has to accompany the wine all the way. Only so doing can you influence the quality of the resulting wine at every stage in the process. Only so doing can you become one with its temperament and guarantee absolute purity. After all, nature is the highest form of quality.”
