Winemaker Notes

Sanct Valentin Pinot Grigio was born back in 1986. The first grape selections were carried out in selected vineyards in Eppan/Berg, and a Pinot gris was vinified in small wooden barrels for the first time. With smoothly integrated acidity, power and fullness, the expressive Sanct Valentin Pinot Grigio has been well received for decades. It is one of Italy’s most-awarded Pinot gris wines and promises an excellent drinking experience even after several years of storage.
A true all-rounder that pairs well with both fish and red meat yet is also a perfect match for risotto with herb pesto.

James Suckling

A dense and very fruity pinot grigio with cooked-apple and pineapple character, yet a tangy and energetic finish. Medium to full body. Crisp finish, yet intensely fruity. This is real pinot grigio. Drink now.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio Sanct Valentin is a fragrant and expressive wine that shows passion and tropical fruits backed by a touch of puff pastry. This wine offers more volume and texture than your standard Pinot Grigio, and that barrique and tonneaux aging does leave its mark. The wine ends with honey and sweet almond paste. You definitely feel the added richness and concentration of the sunny and hot vintage.

St. Michael-Eppan Winery Video

For well over 2000 years, the area of South Tyrol has been fruitful for the cultivation of quality grapes in a unique Alpine environment. Within the heart is the village of Eppan where the St. Michael Eppan winery is located and has been producing some of the region's finest wines since its humble beginnings in 1908.   

At the helm is Hans Terzer, who works closely with 330 individual growers to protect the quality of grapes that go into each of his wines. Many of these small growers only farm a hectare or two of vines and often maintain apple trees and vegetable gardens of their own. With the knowledge of Hans and the meticulous care of each grower the Eppan wines have gained tremendous notoriety since the late 1970s. Each passing vintage the Gambero Rosso awards its highest honor ‘Tre Bicchieri’ to numerous wines from this special winery. In particular they are highly recognized for the prestige of their Sanct Valentin line because of its premium fruit selection and prolonged barrel aging.  

Since 1977 Hans Terzer has been the cellar's winemaker. He is one of the most important winemakers in Italy. In 1997 he was awarded by Gambero Rosso as one of the ten best winemakers in the world and for over 20 years he has been president of the association of the "Kellermeister" of South Tyrol. Over the years he has managed to convince members to adopt a rigorous quality-based philosophy over the years. This road has not always been easy, but with a lot of creativity, a good instinct and a lot of pride, he finally managed to make San Michele what it is today: one of the best wineries in Italy. 

Thanks to the creativity of Hans Terzer, the San Michele Appiano winery has also carried out pioneering work, starting among the first in South Tyrol to make wine in barriques. But it is not enough, because he does not lack ideas for improvement. In fact, never rest on your laurels. So Hans Terzer's motto remains: "There is still a lot to do. We have to improve the quality, to get where we want: to the top of the world!"
