In 1952 the Merano wine growers joined together to found the Meran Cellar cooperative with the task to improve the wine quality and increase the sales. It was a healthy and distinguished wine making operation with over 200 members and a cultivated area of 140 hectares. The turning point in Meran history came in 1992 with appointing Stefan Kapfinger to cellar master position. He did great job finding the right grape variety for each location as well as increasing quality of the wines produced. In July 2010 one more merger took place, Meran Cellar joined forces with another cooperative, Burggräfler Winery (founded 1901). The new formation called Meran Burggräfler Winery has 380 members and 260 hectares of vineyards and markets its top range under the new Meran brand. The new classic line Festival includes six white and six red wines and one rosé.
Meran Festival Sauvignon Blanc is made with 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown on vineyards of Marlengo, Cermes, Lena and Lagundo located at 450-600 meters above sea level.
It is fresh and crispy wine, with notes of citrus, gooseberries, quince jelly and hints of paprika, fresh herbs, grass and nettle. Makes good pairing with asparagus, grilled vegetables and goat cheese. Serving temperature 10-12ºC.
Ready to drink from now through 2021.
