Otmar Mair

Bessererhof, Alto Adige

Bessererhof is the southernmost vineyard estate in Eisacktal/Valle d'Isarco. In the summer its proximity to the Bolzano Basin ensures hot days but the geographic location has cool nights. This natural connection provides the ground for these particular wines from Bessererhof.

The family establishment has been growing wine for more than 60 years and Otmar and Rosmarie Mair with their sons, Philipp and Hannes, have been producing their wine since 1998. Moreover, since 2011 they have produced Pinot Blanc and since 2012 Kerner from the Völs am Schlern and Fiè allo Sciliar vineyards at 800 metres above sea level. In 2011 they bottled a Chardonnay Riserva 2004 "fellis" for the first time.

They produce the red Vernatsch and the Zweigelt "Roan" along with Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay Riserva, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewürztraminer and Goldmuskateller. Cultivating their vineyards on the steep hillsides is part of their passion to create premium quality wines.

30,000 to 35,000 bottles are produced every year.
