The cradle of wine: the terroir

A wine should be an expression of its origin - its terroir - in which the climate, soil conditions, tradition and attitude to life of the region are combined. It should reflect the extraordinary character of the sites where the grapes are grown, and St. Pauls is one of the most beautiful wine growing areas in South Tyrol. 

The grapes ripen under perfect climatic conditions on the area’s slopes and hillsides. It is a simple matter here to find the correct location for each variety of vine in order to enable it to develop its full strength and fruit. Protected by the Alps and benefiting from 1800 hours of sunshine a year, with very warm days and cool nights during the ripening period, the varied growing sites proved a wide range of high quality, fully ripe grapes.
This is where the foundation for excellent quality is laid.


Leopold Kager, a wine grower himself, has been elected President of the St. Pauls Winery in 1997 and in this capacity not only represents it in its dealings with the outside world but also acts as a wise and patient mediator between the management and members.



Wolfgang Tratter are the responsable winemaker at the St. Pauls Cooperative Winery. He bring all his passion and experience to bear in fusing traditional wine making techniques with modern cellar technology.  Together with the personnel in the cellar they form a perfect team, whose skills are reflected in the convincing quality of its wines.

Sustainability - an issue of great importance at the St. Pauls Winery

Our definition of sustainability

For us at the St. Pauls Winery - the management, winegrowers and employees - sustainability means each generation assuming responsibility for the future, without our current actions creating obstacles to future development opportunities. In particular this means ensuring human health, care of the vineyards, and protection of the environment.

We feel a responsibility towards future generations, for our children and our grandchildren... we would thus like to make a measured contribution to improving our future by means fo our current actions, all along the production chain:






Winegrowing - Cellaring - Marketing - Sales


The interlinking and balancing of the three pillars of ecology, economics and society represent the foundations for sustainability and add up to a quality-oriented, socially committed enterprise. For us quality too is a central issue, a necessary aspect related to effective and efficient process management. It is thus no coincidence that our winery's motto is: 


The complete symbiosis of these four points ensures that we can produce high-quality regional wines for the consumer, all with a clear conscience.
