Kerner is a hybrid of Schiava Grossa and Riesling which was first cultivated in Weinsberg, Germany around 1930. The variety does best on very light, gravelly and sandy soils at higher elevations of the middle reaches of the Isarco Valley, which is a very sunny location.
Steep sun-blessed slopes in the Isarco Valley and on the Renon at about 600 to 800 meters a.s.l.
The carefully selected grapes are gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Stainless steel is also used for maturation to keep the wine fresh and crisp.
