Living the Passion

Realizing Inspiration, Quality, and Old Traditions – That’s What the Röck Estate Winery Stands For

The Röck Estate Winery is situated on the slopes of Villanders Mountain, in the northernmost winegrowing zone of Italy, the Isarco-Eisack Valley, which is internationally renowned for its white wines. As an estate winegrower in Alto Adige-South Tyrol, Konrad Augschöll works 3 hectares (7 acres) and produces typical Isarco Valley varieties on sandy soils mixed with slate. With the winegrowing, particular attention is paid to sustainable measures of care in order to bring healthy and ripe grapes into the winery.
