Sauvignon Blanc Lahn St Michael Eppan DOC Alto Adige

Expovina - Silver Medal

St Michael Eppan is one of Italy's finest wineries. It's a cooperative of around 340 individual growers all with tiny vineyard parcels totalling something like 360 hectares. They pool the grapes and have the priviledge of Hanz Terzer, one of the most highly regarded winemakers in the world, making their wines!

This wine is excellent, not far off their legendary Sanct Valentin Sauvignon in quality.
