About the event

South Tyrol's (in Italian Alto Adige) most important red variety Vernatsch aka Schiava is slowly back on track  after years of neglect while facing  the real danger of completely disappearing from this alpine region.

To its rescue has come New Generation Vernatsch - maverick winemakers, who stubbornly  continue to cultivate this ancient red variety in their vineyards, some of them planted 100 years ago, on Alto Adige's cool, alpine slopes. Their wines are highly individual, super-elegant and minerally expression of South Tyrol and against what is popularly believed can age for a decade or more.

New Generation Vernatsch  will be in London to show their interpretations of this grape variety, practically all made of rescued, ancient clones. that is able to transmit the unique alpine terroir into the glass like no other red Alto Adige variety.  These New Generation Vernatsch wines  will set the record straight and will make you forget everything you have been told about Schiava, including its name!

This day-long event will start with a seminar in which all nine mavericks will talk about their  work in the vineyard as well as in the cellar and each showing  a current and an aged vintage of their Vernatsch. A walk-around tasting in the afternoon showcases around 40 Vernatsch wines, with most  them available for tastingfor the very first time in the UK.

Expect heroic wines and aged treasures from:

PRANZEGG - HARTMANN DONÀ - BERGMANNHOF - GIRLAN - IN DER EBEN - CASTEL SALLEGG - REYTER - ANDI SÖLVA - GRIESBAUERHOF
