Roverè della Luna has a name full of poetry and an ancient past. Roverè della Luna is where we find the Gaierhof Estate, in the Trentino region, near Mount Gaier, dipped in vineyards. Here in this Estate selects the very best grapes for making important wines that are the fruit of knowledge, winemaking wisdom, technology and great enthusiasm.
Gaierhof is the story of three generations of the Togn family, beginning in 1943 with Germano Togn, father of Luigi, who is now running the Estate, along with his three daughters Romina, Martina, Valentina and by his son-in-law Goffredo Pasolli.
This winemaking vocation has deep roots in Trentino winery traditions and in the expertise that has been handed down from father to son, getting richer each time, starting with first grape-grower in the Togn family.
Experience, experimentation, leading-edge production equipment, ongoing and painstaking care for quality: these are the key factor behind Gaierhof's success in penetrating and succeeding in all markets. Today the Gaierhof Estate is a synonym for completeness and maturity. Enthusiasm and tradition live together, exalted by high-tech know-how that sizes all the opportunities offered by innovation. In fact, Luigi Togn was one of the first in the Trentino Region to import horizontal presses after seeing them during one of his many travels to great winegrowing nations. Today these presses are held to be priceless in their ability to give greater balance to must. Leading-edge technologies, constant research and select yeasts aim at further increasing the quality and prestige of these already important wines.
The winemaking exstension of the Trentino Region is expressed by twenty-five labels, all of wich testify to the greatness and extraordinary variety of this district. These are all wines, except for Schiava, Novello and the new Syrah, that enjoy the Trentino Controlled Origin Brand (DOC).
Winemaking tradtions reach their highest levels in white wines. White wine grapes reach perfection thanks to ideal temperature ranges during August and September, giving these grapes, and consequently their wines, a perfect balance of acidity and sugar content. Red wines are also grand, excellent wines that are almost all made of native grape varieties. Genteel reds: wines that are created on the grapevine because important wines start during selection in the vineyard and exemplify the care and seletion that are part of the time-tested Trentino winemaking culture.
