7 generations of winemakers

Since its inception, Franz Haas winery has tirelessly worked to express the quality of the grapes at their finest. Founded in 1880, the winery has been handed down for seven generations to the firstborn son, to whom has always been given the same name, Franz.

In the 1980s most of the vineyards were replaced, leaving space to new varieties more suitable for the types of soil. The vineyards start at an altitude of 220 meters, ascending to 1,150 meters with a great variety of microclimates and soils, from porphyry to clay and limestone: these are among the highest vineyards in Alto Adige today.

Now, more than fifteen years later, the choice of planting vines at these altitudes has proven to be optimal to produce long-lasting, aromatic wines with a strong acidity. This is supported by the wide thermal excursions between day and night and the four additional hours of sunshine per day.
