In Autumn of 2013, Finkus Bripp decided to do a winery architecture series and visit some of Alto Adige’s leading wineries, four in total and another series is planned in 2014. Though Alto Adige is one of Italy’s smallest wine regions (in regards to production volume), it boasts the highest overall quality level – over 80% of the grapes grown go into quality wine production – and some of the most progressive winery architecture in Italy.

In this video Finkus talks to Elena Walch, one of Alto Adige’s most renown winemakers and get her take on winery architecture.

Elena Walch, a former architect, married into one of Alto Adige’s leading wine families and has consistently made award-winning wines which carry her name year for year.

The winery is a harmonious mix of classic and modern and definitely worth visiting, the wines truly exceptional. On the grounds you will find Elena Walch’s Bistrot “Le Verre Capricieux”, a great place to enjoy a glass & snack quietly after a wine tour.
