It takes iconic wines ON!

The diamond of Alto Adige, Elena Walch's boutique winery, creates wines that mirror the terroir of the region. Specifically, it has made a selection of wines with the philosophy one variety – one, single vineyard. Architect Elena Walch fell in love with winemaker Werner Walch, and along with that she loved the Walch family wines and vineyards. When she stood there, she thought, if you have vineyards so beautiful, you have to make wines just as beautiful. She started actualize this vision when she founded her winery.

The wine that established the winery of Elena Walch in public and critics as one of Alto Adige's top and Italy’s in general was the Gewurztraminer Vigna Kastelaz. The grapes come from the unique climatic and soil morphology of Kastelaz vineyard. The Vigna designation refers to a particular piece of land within a vineyard that has either historical value or geographic value and is a terroir sample as it makes wines of high quality and unique character.

This particular wine was first created around 1990 and managed to get the amazing score of 90 points from Wine Spectator, in a blind Gewurz tasting from Gewurz from all around the world. If you think that this score is not that high, contemplate that wine spectator considers it as a record since gewurz is not a favorite variety for the Americans, on one hand, and on the other hand, it had to compete with iconic wines from Austria and Alsace.
