Ep.60. / Pfitscher bottles Alpine freshness with golden ripeness!

Ep.60. / Pfitscher bottles Alpine freshness with golden ripeness!

After a long break, the 60th episode will feature one of my favourite wineries: Pfitscher out of Montagna, Alto Adige. All of the Pfitscher wines carry a fresh Alpine DNA with a perfect ripeness, finesse and precision. My guest was Daniel Pfitscher, the main face of the estate, whose family started making wines in the middle of the 19th century in the leading white wine region of Italy. He will introduce us to his homeland, how his team achieves crispiness together with excellent ripeness at the same time in their vineyards and cellar, you can also learn the secret of the 92 years old grandpa who still an active member of the team, you'll get to hear THE RED VARIETY of the region with some food-pairing tips. And as always, much more! Unfortunately, the sound quality is not the best, but I hope it doesn't get in the way of hearing the essence of the exceptional Pfitscher wine ghosts, so enjoy!
