Trentino is the northernmost region of Italy and it is characterized by its cold weather. The region can be divided into three climatic zone: the valley of lakes, with Mediterranean climate; the river valley (called: Val d’Adige) with sub-continental climate, where GAIERHOF Winery lays; and the lateral river valley, with Alpine climate.
Thanks to the cold weather of the River Valley, and mostly to the big temperature drop between day and night, this area is particularly suitable for variety like Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir), Pinot Grigio, and other aromatic variety like Moscato, Traminer and Muller-Thurgau. Cold climate wines are characterized by great intensity at the nose, elegant bouquet and balanced body. In one word ELEGANT wines.
Gaierhof winery is located in Roverè della Luna (that means “Oak of the Moon”) and it owes its romantic name to the fact that a majestic oak tree once stood at the center of the town and the Adige river that runs through the center of the valley there makes a turn that looks like a half-moon when seen from the road. For this reason the Village toke the name of “Oak of the Moon” !!! This wine is a perfect companion to appetizer, pasta or risotto, poultry, seafood and cheese.
