Nusserhof, located in the center of Bolzano in the Südtirol, squeezed between the Adige river and the A22 highway, is a tiny 4 hectare estate specializing in local grape varieties such as Lagrein, Teroldego, Schiava and Blatterle. The family have been farmers in the area since 1788 and the city has literally grown around them. What used to be farmland is now industry and their estate is a little patch of green alongside the river.The estate is well-known not only for its wine but because of the family history.  Josef Mayr-Nusser (27 December 1910 - 24 February 1945) was an Italian Roman Catholic who served as the President of the Saint Vincent de Paul Conference of the Bolzano division as well as a member of Catholic Action.

We are in the craft spirits business! 

As of July 1st we can now offer you a portfolio of fine spirits centered on the excellent line-up from Craft Distillers.   We plan to grow the spirits portfolio, slowly, in a similar fashion to our wine portfolio; choosing producers who focus on local ingredients, use care in the process and who show a sensitivity to the environment-- and oh yes--who also stress flavor and character! 

We are happy to be part of this growing movement of craft spirits and look forward to being a part of it for a long time to come.

Wine made above the clouds is meant to be consumed on the roof. Vino que se cultiva arriba de los nubles es destinado por estar tomado en el techo. #vijariegoblanco #vitigo #tenerife #islascanarias #volcanicvino #islandwine
