Klaus Lentsch fulfilled his dream of having his own winery when he purchased the Hemberg farm at Campodazzo in 2008. Lentsch began his endeavor with only three wines, which has since expanded to ten. In 2013, Weingut Klaus Lentsch established it's permanent home in the middle of the vineyards of St. Pauls. The spacious new building of the winery stands out with clear lines from the lush greenery all around. It is a welcoming place to explore the wine varieties from the Valle Isarco, Oltradige and Bassa Atesina.
Alto Adige is a comparatively small wine-growing region that, despite its size, produces a considerable variety of wines with distinctive character traits. Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, Weißburgunder and Chardonnay are grown, followed by Sauvignon, Müller Thurgau, Sylvaner, Kerner, Riesling and Veltliner. This means that the white wines account for around 55% of the cultivation areas of South Tyrol. The red varieties, which are grown on less than 45% of cultivated land, include Vernatsch, Lagrein, Blauburgunder, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. All of them, whether red or white, are enjoying an increased popularity among wine lovers.
With 12.5 Ha under vine and a small production of 72,000 bottles per year, Klaus Lentsch is committed to low yields and high quality. The vineyards are situated at 400-600 m above sea level on sunny steep terraces, and planted in clay and gravelly soils. these conditions along with Lentsch's commitment to sustainable farming and production methods make for enjoyable, high quality wines.
