The foundation was first laid in 1989 for what is arguably the most famous white wine produced at St. Michael-Eppan Winery. The Sanct Valentin Sauvignon has found excellent conditions at the foot of the Mendel Massif in selected vineyards that have been carefully chosen over the course of the last 20 years, in order to produce a great vintage wine with impressive fruit, minerality and excellent persistence. This fine wine is not only the pride of the winery today and the most important wine of the Sanct Valentin line, but also one of Italy’s most award-winning white wines.
