Tasting Notes

This is a wonderfully virbant and complex Pinot Bianco, bright fresh pears and lemons on the nose with a hint of nuttiness. The palate has a richness of texture which is balanced perfectly by a fresh seam of acidity. The density of flavour here and touches of smokey minerality show this wine's ability to age gracefully for quite some time.

*****

The story of Dornach estate begins 5000 years ago.�It�s around that time that the first settlements were found in this area.�The first documented trace of the term �Dornachhof� (the hill of Dornach) dates back to 1288, ascribable to the Count of Tirol Mainardo II and the Duke of Carinthia, who founded Tirol.�In 1836 Anton von Gemini zu Kreuzhof acquires Dornach. His son Max, later on, will shape the estate as it is today, with terraced vineyards and the typical ancient stone walls.�The last heirs of the Hausmann family, (who married a member of the Gemini zu Kreuzhof), are three sister who inherit Dornach in 1980 and after years of efforts and dedication they complete the renovation of the estate.�Today we, the heirs of the Von Hausmann and the Von Gelmini families, look after the vineyard and the property.�Patrick starts working in the company in 2008 and begins the conversion to organic farming and starts applying biodynamic principles to his agriculture.�Biodynamics is much more than a simple farming technique for us. We experience it as a broad development process that involves vineyards, vegetable gardens, animals and finally engages us too.
