Considered one of the best wineries in South Tyrol and Italy, St. Michael Eppan Winery is a collective with 355 members, 350 hectares of vineyard and 2.5 million bottles sold every year. They have become renowned worldwide, and their “Sanct Valentin” label alone is enough to thrill wine lovers and connoisseurs. This wine is made from 70% Gewürztraminer, 15% Riesling, and 15% Sauvignon in the passito style. Passito is the Italian term for wines made from grapes that have been dried in the open air and sunshine, and become almost raisin-like. This wine has intense fruit, soft and creamy body, and a long finish that lingers on the palate with racy, fresh acidity. The youthful, fresh flavors become increasingly complex with the right bottle aging, gradually evolving into muted notes of honey.
