The eponymous Alois Lageder winery was founded over 150 years ago in Alto Adige, Italy’s most northern wine growing region. Here Alois Lageder grows grapes on steep Dolomite slopes with varied micro-climates that provide distinct vineyard sites—ideal for producing a wide variety of wines. Alois Lageder produces nearly 30 wines. In 1934, the family acquired the Löwengang estate in Magrè and subsequently acquired other vineyards in prime positions in Alto Adige. Since the 1980s the current, fifth generation Alois Lageder’s innovative ideas and strategies, and pioneering practices such as “quality rather than quantity” have led the movement to improve Alto Adige’s wine industry.
