Wine culture since 1142

Neustift Abbey’s winery is one of the oldest in the world.

Since 1142 wine production has been an integral part of life at Neustift Abbey, which is located right in the middle of the northernmost winegrowing area south of the Alps. Tradition and location are of course both reflected in the Neustift wines. As well as a constant striving for the highest quality.

The highest quality

Our goal is the highest quality. The vineyard and cellar are thus run on strict lines, as this is the only way to produce wines guaranteeing maximum enjoyment. Even years after bottling.

Sustainable in every way

As the winery of a monastery we are committed to God’s creation. Our business is therefore sustainable, in harmony with nature and operated with subsequent generations in mind.

Excellent locations

The cool locations and light soils in Eisacktal produce unique white wines, while the warm, low locations in Girlan and Bozen are ideal for our red wines.

Neustift started off right from the beginning in 1142 with vineyards where grapes could be grown for the monastery’s own winery. Wine culture at Neustift is thus almost 900 years old, in other words the monastery has one of the oldest active wineries in the world.
For centuries wine was only produced for the Neustift community’s own use. Gradually, however, the winery assumed a leading role, and today it is one of the most famous in the wine country of South Tyrol.  
We’re not blowing our own trumpet: this is what the critics say, who have awarded our wine many prizes. And it’s also the opinion of wine connoisseurs from all over the world.  

Our wine lines

For every occasion and taste

A winegrowing area like no other

The south in the north

Our white varieties come from the northernmost winegrowing area south of the Alps. This location in the midst of the Dolomites, is where winegrowing reaches its limits. In almost 900 years we’ve learned how to exploit this situation. And make of it what is possible: the best.
