Manincor is a 400-year old wine estate upon 50 hectares, making it the largest wine estate in the entire South Tyrol province in Northern Italy. Steeped in old values and rich heritage (some of the buildings on the estate date back to 1608), Manincor has been built on the history of many generations of winegrowing and agriculture. Initially, Manincor was not a winery and only sold grapes others. However, with the establishment of their own cellar in 1996, Manincor began to crush their own grapes and have been producing top-tier wines ever since. Despite a long history dating back for generations, it still remains a family operation, with Michael and Sophie Goëss-Enzenberg at the helm.

With a wine estate that dates back 400 years, Manincor benefits from a harvest that is naturally pure. The estate is dedicated to preserving an authentic balance, and the wine cellar, itself, is built underneath the vines and is hardly even apparent from above ground. Bio-dynamic principles are at the foundation of wine production at Manincor, and their focus on sustainability has been longstanding, while other wineries rush to catch up on the trend. Their philosophy extends from the land and soil, to the cellars, to the vines. The wineries dedication and respect for the nature and surrounding area has earned them the highest certifications in standards for the Demeter biodynamic certification and EU organic food. For Manincor, it’s not just about the vineyards, it’s about the entire landscape, including the meadows, orchards and woodlands on the estate.
