More about this Producer
The reason a top-quality cooperative is so important in Alto Adige is because individual growers’ plots average about 2.5 acres in this enormously expensive, and beautiful, viticultural area. Growers must pool their resources to produce quality wines. Santa Magdalena’s member-owners (about 170, all told) account for some of the best vineyard area on either side of the valley and even up the valley in Valle Isarco – a more and more well-known area for some of the best wines in all of Italy.
Santa Magdalena’s wines have been at the pinnacle of Alto Adige’s production qualitatively for a very long time. The current winemaker, Stephan Filipi, enjoys a huge reputation in Italy and abroad, and has served, proudly, since 1988. Before him his father was the winemaker – father and son have served for a combined total of about 55 years. Talk about continuity!
