PIPA is the most extravagant wine in our range. PIPA is a fortified wine – a vino liquoroso, which is inspired by Port wine. This first South Tyrolean “Port” is vinified from Lagrein grapes and is a long-lived and complex dessert wine, modelled and produced after a vintage ruby. The name “Pipa” stems from the typical oak barrels in which Port is aged in Portugal.
Technical Data Sheet
After a journey to the Douro Valley in Portugal, birthplace of Port, I was inspired to try and produce a Port myself. I wanted to capture and conserve the typical cherry notes of the Lagrein in the fermentation. After several experiments I was successful at refining the process to get the perfect result.Franz Gojer
